Blueberries Improve Memory?

Recently, the University of Reading and the Peninsula Medical School in the Southwest region of England conducted studies on the flavonoid compounds in blueberries. They discovered that “phytochemical-rich foods are effective at reversing age-related deficits in memory according to a published journal from Free Radical Biology and Medicine.” (The Peninsula College of Medicine and Dentistry, 2008) The study was conducted over a 12-week period. Multiple memory tests were applied during those weeks, and within three weeks, memory improvements were being documented. These improvements continued throughout the duration of the 12 week test.

Blueberries contain anthocyanins and flavanols. It has been shown that these particular molecules have the ability to cross the blood brain barrier after consumption. The theory behind these molecules results in “enhancing existing neuronal (brain cells) connections, improving cellular communications and stimulating neuronal regeneration." (The Peninsula College of Medicine and Dentistry, 2008)

“The research team was able to show the ability of flavonoids to induce memory improvements are mediated by the activation of signaling proteins via a specific pathway in the hippocampus, the part of the brain that controls learning and memory.” (The Peninsula College of Medicine and Dentistry, 2008)

Many doctors involved in this scientific research project have successfully documented that certain molecules present in blueberry consumption can benefit memory. Dr. Jeremy Spencer was noted stating that, “[We] plan on extending our research and plan on further investigating the effects of diets rich in flavonoids on individuals suffering from cognitive impairment and Alzheiner’s disease.”

Chiropractor’s Choice contains blueberries as well as four other antioxidant berries that provide many different sources of flavonoids.
