“Blueberries contain polyphenols that protect the brain from inflammation and oxidative stress, which in turn may protect the brain from the degenerative effects of aging and from injury from ischemic stroke. Blueberries may even help prevent Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease. When rats suffering from Alzheimer’s-like symptoms were supplemented with blueberries in their diets, they were able to perform normally on tests involving memory and motor behavior. I recommend a serving of organic blueberries every day.” (p.213)
