Blue memories

Blueberries contain anthocyanins that are anti-inflammatory and antioxidant. Aside from their general health benefits animal studies have suggested they increase neuron to neuron communication in the brain, improve glucose use in the brain and are involved in memory function. You might expect then that blueberries would have a beneficial impact on memory loss in humans. So researchers asked a group of people in their 70s who were showing early signs of memory loss to drink two and a half cups of commercial blueberry juice daily for twelve weeks. Those who had drunk the blueberry juice showed improved paired associate learning and improved word list recall. There was also a trend toward reduced depressive symptoms and lower glucose levels. The blueberry drinkers also did better than a group drinking placebo. The results suggest that blueberry juice, and probably blueberries, may be a way to ward off memory loss.Meanwhile if you visit Meijer Ad that contains mostly likewise discounts with Winn Dixie Ad you surely have a range like ALDI Ad.
