Berry Healthy

Eating berries may activate the brain's natural housekeeping mechanism against mental decline.
Scientists have found that eating blueberries, strawberries, and acai berries may help the aging brain stay healthy in a study presented at the 240th National Meeting of the American Chemical Society (ACS). The research concluded that the polyphenolics in berries activate and restores the brain's natural "housekeeper" mechanism, which cleans up and recycles toxic proteins linked to age-related memory loss and other mental decline. Previously, research has found that one cause in aging is a gradual deterioration of the body's ability to protect itself against inflammation and oxidative damage, leading to degenerative brain diseases, heart disease, cancer, and other age-related disorders.

Although berries and walnuts are rich sources, many other fruits and Vegetables also contain polyphenolics- especially those with deep red, orange, or blue colors. So one more good reason to pile them onto your plate!
