Social Relief of Distress grant extended to March 2024

The COVID-19 Social Relief of Distress (SRD) Grant – also known as the R350 grant – is expected to be extended to the end of March 2024. This as government continues to consider options for a replacement for the grant with no decision taken yet on how the replacement will be financed. Finance Minister Enoch Godongwana announced the extension of the grant during his presentation of the Medium Term Budget Policy Statement in Parliament on Wednesday afternoon. “The SRD grant was introduced in May 2020 as a temporary measure to respond to the needs of the most vulnerable, who were affected by [COVID-19 induced] lockdown measures. It has been extended several times since then. Discussions on the future of the grant are ongoing and involve very difficult trade-offs and financing decisions,” he said.

Boost Your Heart Health with the Power of Blueberries: A Delicious Path to Wellness

Blueberries have been found to be beneficial for heart health due to their high content of antioxidants called anthocyanins, which give the berries their deep blue color. 

Here are some ways blueberries may benefit heart health:

Lowering blood pressure: Several studies have found that consuming blueberries can help lower blood pressure, which is a risk factor for heart disease. One study found that consuming blueberries daily for eight weeks led to a significant decrease in both systolic and diastolic blood pressure.

Reducing inflammation: Chronic inflammation is linked to many chronic diseases, including heart disease. Blueberries have anti-inflammatory properties due to their high content of anthocyanins, which may help reduce inflammation and lower the risk of heart disease.

Improving cholesterol levels: High levels of LDL (bad) cholesterol are a risk factor for heart disease. Several studies have found that consuming blueberries can help improve cholesterol levels by lowering LDL cholesterol and increasing HDL (good) cholesterol.

Improving endothelial function: Endothelial dysfunction is a precursor to atherosclerosis, a condition in which plaque builds up in the arteries and can lead to heart disease. Studies have found that consuming blueberries can improve endothelial function, potentially reducing the risk of heart disease.
