The St. Boniface Hospital Foundation recently put the spotlight on the research of Dr. Jeffrey Wigle (Vascular Development, Institute of Cardiovascular Sciences) and Dr. Thomas Netticadan (Heart Failure Research Laboratory, Canadian Centre for Agri-food Research in Health and Medicine).

Drs. Wigle and Netticadan are focusing their attention on cyanidin-3-glucoside, a polyphenol found in abundance in certain berries; specifically, whether cyanidin-3-glucoside, which exists to colour and protect plants, can also protect people.

You can read about their results here; http://www.saintboniface.ca/foundation/protecting-hearts/
