Take this super nutrient to protect your memory and eyesight
You probably know that I'm a big fan of eating whole foods over supplements. But there are times when supplements offer significant advantages. Take blueberries for example. This food is one of the most nutritious foods you can eat. It's packed with nutrients that are great for your body. In fact, we know that they can really help your memory.
But now there's a supplement that can super-charge your blueberry intake. A new study shows this supplement can work wonders for your memory.
In the study, researchers divided rats into three groups based on age. They gave the oldest rats 2% of their diet as powdered blueberry. That gave them about 10.5 mg per day of blueberry flavonoids, especially the rich colored anthocyanins.
The researchers then put the three groups through spatial working memory tasks (standard memory tests for rats). At baseline, the young rats scored the best, as expected. They worked the tasks with a 90% accuracy. The older rats that didn't eat the blueberry powder had only a 60% accuracy.
However, after only three weeks of eating the blueberry powder, the third group improved to about 83%. That's exceptionally quick cognitive improvement. These rats had higher levels of the phytochemicals in their brains after supplementation. And, key neuronal biochemical pathways improved.

Blueberries are among my favorite foods on the planet. I'll scarf them down by the handful. This study makes perfect sense with what we know of blueberry power. Blueberry powder is a superfood in my book. I suggest adding blueberries or blueberry powder to your daily routine to prevent or ameliorate problems with age-related cognitive decline.
You can find blueberry powder online. Shop around for the best price for the highest dose of phytochemicals. But to get the best protection for your brain, I suggest you try Advanced Bionutritionals Advanced Memory Formula. It has added blueberry to make this a powerful formula that works wonders.

Yours for better health and medical freedom,
