A research study published in January in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry concluded that blueberries could improve memory in the elderly. It is never too early to boost your memory, simply incorporate blueberries into your daily diet.

 

Blueberries are not always in season, so if fresh blueberries are not at your market there are some other forms in which you can get the natural antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits found in blueberries.

Here are some easy ways to incorporate blueberries into your daily diet: drink a glass of 100% natural wild blueberry juice, add dehydrated or fresh blueberries to snacks, opt for a smear of blueberry preserves and use flash-frozen blueberries as a refreshing snack or main ingredient in a smoothie.

According to Dr. Nicholas Perricone, internationally respected dermatologist and author, blueberries are a superfood and “brain-beauty” food; because of their anti-inflammatory properties, blueberries cannot only keep dementia at bay but also ward off wrinkles.
