Brain Food

Researchers at Scripps Memorial Hospital in La Jolla, Calif., have found that blueberries help protect the brain from oxidative stress in animals, and may reduce the effects of age-related conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease or dementia.

Studies have also shown that diets rich in blueberries significantly improved both the learning capacity and motor skills of aging rats, making them mentally equivalent to much younger rats.

The benefits of blueberries can be found in fresh, frozen or dried berries. Enjoy them by themselves or in oatmeal, a smoothie, yogurt, or a fruit salad.
