Blueberries and Health
Throughout history, blueberries have been valued for their taste and health benefits. In early times, blueberries were gathered from the forests and the bogs by Native Americans, consumed fresh and also preserved. The Northeast Native American tribes revered blueberries and much folklore developed around them. A tea made from the leaves of the plant was thought to be good for the blood. The juice was used to treat coughs.
Blueberries rank as the number one fruit provider of antioxidants.
Study Points to Blueberries for Better Memory Function *
In an article published January 4, 2010 in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry,
Robert Krikorian of the University of Cincinnati, along with colleagues from the US and
Canadian Departments of Agriculture, report that consuming blueberry juice was associated
with improvements in learning and memory in individuals with age-related memory
decline. The trial enrolled men and women over the age of 70 who reported forgetfulness and memory lapses characteristic
of early memory decline. Participants were given the equivalent of 2 cups of a commercially available blueberry juice
daily for 12 weeks. At the study's conclusion, learning and recall were improved, and depressive symptoms were reduced.
Blueberries Enhance Brain Signals, Protect Brain Cells *
Enhanced brain signaling and protection of brain cells have been demonstrated in association with blueberry supplementation
in animal studies as well, and anthocyanins that occur in blueberries have been found in regions of the brain
that are essential for thinking function. Anthocyanins have insulin-like properties that improve metabolic function,
which, when disturbed, appears to be a factor in brain cell degeneration as well as cardiovascular diseases. *
