A new study indicates that eating berries, specifically strawberries and blueberries, may reduce cognitive decline in elderly women. Strawberries and blueberries contain high levels of flavonoids, compounds that have powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.

The Harvard Medical School study, published in the latest issue of the journal Annals of Neurology, supports similar findings from smaller studies on the benefits of flavonoids.

Aging often results in mental decline — and the world’s aging population is large and growing. There are currently 390 million people over the age of 65 around the world with an expected increase to 800 million by 2025. According to Alzheimer’s Disease International, dementia affects one in 20 people over the age of 65. Some 24 million people worldwide are currently thought to experience some form of dementia.

“With the rising cost of healthcare and drugs, patients are increasingly turning to preventive lifestyle actions over which they have some control, such as exercise and diet,” said Dr. Joseph. “Emerging science continues to point to natural foods as sources of beneficial nutrients that can have some positive impact on cognitive function.”
