I see, I see … strawberries!


Eating strawberries minimal once a month, results in less a decrease of cognitive functions with elderly in comparison with their peers who don’t eat the strawberries. The effect is even stronger with women who eat the fruit.
That is the conclusion of American scientists of Tufts University in Medford. The subjects were all enlisted at the Chicago Healthy Aging Project.

The strawberries contain antioxidants which protect the membrans of the nervecells against infections and oxidation. This results in a delay of the aging process and thus also the brains.

It was already know that all berries were good for the health. So are raspberries a large source of vitamin C. Eating berries regularly protects against heart disease, infections and certain cancers.
