Berries could support brain health in ageing population



A diet rich in phytochemicals from berries could help improve brain health in several ways,

  • such as improving communication pathways and
  • protecting against oxidative stress, say researchers.

The review – published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry – suggests that consumption of

  • blueberries,
  • blackberries,
  • strawberries and
  • other berry fruits has
  • beneficial effects on the brain, and
  • could help prevent age-related memory loss and other changes.

The nutritional antioxidant effect of this class of fruits is both well understood and established,

but new research indicates neurological effectiveness also.

Further research is required to pinpoint neuro-availability mechanisms and to determine if a specific phyto-nutrient or a combination is responsible.

The researchers went on to point out that longer life spans are raising concerns about the human toll and health care costs of treating Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of mental decline.

They went on to explain that recent research has increasingly shown that eating berry fruits can benefit the ageing brain.
