Researchers find that ‘aguardente’ fruit Medronho is good for you

A recent study has found that medronho, the fruit commonly found in the Algarve’s Monchique and Caldeirão mountains and used to create the hugely alcoholic Medronho aguardente (firewater), is actually very good for your health.
Researchers from the University of Aveiro have discovered that the fruit from the strawberry tree (Arbutus unedo) can “help prevent cancer, control cholesterol levels and improve the health of skin and bones”.
