Blueberries for Brain Power!

Blueberries for Brain Power!

Jan 30, 2013

When I was a boy each summer we would pick blueberries right off bushes in the backyard and make blueberry ice cream, pies and pancakes. These days any time I have fresh blueberries I am mentally returned to those days. As a nutritionist I understand that taste can be one of the strongest memory stimulators, however now I am wondering if the blueberries themselves don’t play a role as well. That’s because the results of a new study published in the American Chemical Society’s Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry suggests that blueberries can support memory function. Blueberries contain polyphenolic nutrients called anthocyanins that not only color the berry blue but also imparts antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Based on these properties many scientists believe that blueberries, along with other fruits such as tomatos and grapes as well as teas support healthy brain function. So the brainy thing to do is to eat a diet that includes fresh fruits and DHA containing fish or supplements and live a healthy lifestyle that includes exercise for the body and the mind (e.g. puzzles, Sudoku), plenty of sleep and no smoking.

    • The importance bnheid supporting our local farmers goes far beyond the awsomeness they grow. I have our local farmers market people come speak to my 1st graders every year. They learn so much about fruits/veg. Far more than they would ever learn just going to the grocery store. America is what it is today b/c of farming/fishing/hunting. My great-grandparents used to own a fruit stand they sold peaches to Bonnie & Clyde .kinda of crazy I am such a history nerd Thank you for sharing your story .awsomeness all the way around as you always are -Kelli
