Developing Alzheimer’s disease (AD) or some other form of dementia is a very real concern for older adults. The potential loss of dignity, identity, and independence is a frightening thought.
There is good news on the nutrition front, however. Berries may provide protection against Alzheimer’s as well as age-related memory loss and other types of cognitive decline.
- They contain high amounts of antioxidants that protect cells from damage.
- Blackberries also change the way that neurons in the brain communicate, and this may prevent inflammation in the brain that can damage neurons.
- Components in blackberries also improve cognition and motor control.
