Berries Fuel Brain Power & Prevent Memory Loss

I am trying to eat healthier, shed some weight, workout more…you know,  relive the New Year’s resolutions from the past 15 years…anyway, I spotted an interesting study about the power of berries!

“Eating berries at least once a week protects the brain from age related memory loss, according to a major Harvard Medical School study. Researchers focuses on the diets and health of 16,000 women and tracked them for more than 20 years.”

Sounds pretty comprehensive…I was wondering if the benefits were significant and if I would have to live the life of a forest creature to eat enough to do me any good…SURPRISE!  Read on! “Mental function tests were regularly administered during the final six years. The astonishing results: Those who ate the most blueberries and strawberries had a slower rate of memory loss than those who ate the least the difference was equal to about two and a half years of aging. Surprisingly, the biggest berry eaters consumed only a single half cup serving of blueberries or two half cup servings of strawberries each week.”

I guess the trick is to NOT eat them on the three scoops of ice cream!  But what a delicious way to hold on to the memory of the taste of blueberries and strawberries!
