Berries can be consumed to improve “Useful signals in the brain.” Plant foods are our primary source of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds, but some plant foods may be better than others. as I am Explore it Before that, a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial showed us that one cup of blueberries per day can to improve Cognition among the elderly, the same is happening In children after eating only one meal with blueberries, although two cups of berries may be better than one.
As I discuss in my video Benefits of blueberries for mood and mobilityThat one hit might be a berry too to improve mood. In a double-blind, placebo-controlled, crossover study, young subjects Requested A series of questions, such as Are you very little or not at all, a little, moderate, very little, or very interested? Joy? strong? ashamed? and so on. As you can see in the chart below and at 0:55 in my country videobefore and after drinking With a placebo, there was no significant change in the young adult participants between the ages of 18 and 21, but after two hours of eating about two cups of blueberries, their positive mood scores improved significantly. They felt more excited, alert, inspired and interested. The same results were found in children aged seven to ten years. The benefits achieved not with some dangerous new mood-enhancing drug or Ritalin, but blueberries – and after just one meal.
Now, blueberries can’t do everything. Although a cup of berries for sure It seems To improve brain function, no improvement in gait (walking) or balance was observed. What if you try two Cups of blueberries a day, six weeks might be two cups of frozen blueberries a day effect Functional mobility in adults over the age of sixty? Study participants were randomly assigned to pre-packaged blueberry or bottled carrot juice as a control, and the researchers measured tasks, including one where “two bright yellow ropes on the ground identified the narrow path, and the participants were instructed to walk within the tight path.” Blueberry outperformed the carrot juice control, and significant improvements suggest that “blueberry supplementation may provide an effective countermeasure for age-related declines in functional mobility…” Subsequently, the researchers thought that the control might have been supposed to. A real placebo (eg, cucumber powder) without antioxidant properties, “because the carrots themselves may have provided some benefits as well. Had they used a different control, the blueberry results might have been more impressive. “Overall, this study demonstrates the need for further exploration of blueberry supplementation as a non-pharmacological countermeasure to the public health problem of age-related decline in functional mobility and independence.” Or, to use the smaller version, “Polyphenol Rich Diet Interventions [phytonutrient-rich] foods, such as blueberries, Present Possible fruitful A strategy to combat some of the adverse effects of age-related neurodegeneration.” (emphasis added.)
Isn’t science great! I would love to have these studies done.
