Blueberries are a rich source of antioxidants and phytochemicals that can improve memory. A study just appeared in the ACS’ Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry showing the relationship between drinking blueberry juice and improved memory in older adults.
The study took a group of volunteers in their 70’s who had early memory decline and had them drink 2.5 cups of blueberry juice twice per day for two months. The control group did not drink any blueberry juice. The blueberry-drinking group showed significant improvements on learning and memory test.
The scientist said “These preliminary memory findings are encouraging and suggest that consistent supplementation with blueberries may offer an approach to forestall or mitigate neurodegeneration”.
