|Cognitive dysfunction affects 10 million American adults. There are an additional 5.2 million with Alzheimer’s. Anything you can do to lower your risk and keep your brain healthy the better. It’s an added benefit when the treatment tastes absolutely wonderful.
This report arises from the long ongoing Nurses Health Study. The subjects submitted a food frequency questionnaire every four years beginning in 1980. In the period 1995-2001, researchers evaluated 16,010 women 70 or older for cognitive function every two years.

The researchers found that greater intakes of blueberries and strawberries slowed cognitive decline significantly. Higher berry intake appeared to delay cognitive decline by up to 2.5 years. The researchers also found that eating more anthocyanidins and total flavonoids also slowed cognitive decline.
Reports like this give me warm fuzzies. They confirm my long-term preaching on diet, diet, and more diet for great health. Again, the key to great health is what you eat. Colorful fruits and veggies contain a complex of phytochemicals that you just can’t match in a test tube or a pill. True, this was a food questionnaire study. It’s not the best. But, it fits in with the broader picture of food, flavonoids, and cellular preservation nutrients.
I eat berries almost every day. I grow lots of raspberries. They are remarkably easy to grow. I have more trouble with blueberries and strawberries. I buy them by the case when in season, and have no compunction about getting frozen organic berries. I buy them from just about any vendor, including health food stores and Costco during the colder months.
If you don’t have access to berries for any length of time, I strongly suggest you supplement your diet with Advanced Greens Formula. It contains both blueberries, strawberries, cranberries, and many other fruits and vegetables. While I will always prefer the actual fruit, this is a fantastic supplement that is substantially better than nothing.
