Groups of berries, like blueberries, blackberries, or strawberries, contain antioxidants which are very high. Therefore, the fruit is highly recommended to slow aging and prevent free radical. Other benefits which recently was known to improve brain function and prevent memory loss due to aging.
“As well as antioxidant effects, the consumption of berries also have a direct effect on the brain,” said the researcher, Marshall Miller, from USDA-ARS Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging, and colleagues who published his findings in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry.
The researchers said the results of laboratory studies on animals show that diets high in fruits give the beneficial effects on brain signalling pathways in preventing the occurrence of inflammation and cell death. The effect of the improvement in brain function and even help prevent the occurrence of brain disorders such as Alzheimer’s and dementia, age-related.
The workings of the brain berry
In the latest findings, the researchers studied the effects of consumption give the brain a signal or internal communication and behavior. The findings indicate that the consumption of berries such as in animals and humans contribute to prevent aging of the brain in various ways.
First, given the high antioxidant content helps protect brain cells from damage by harmful free radicals, which are released in the body of the “oxidation.” » Read more..
