Eating blueberries daily reduces the risk of dementia
Cincinnati: A study by the University of Cincinnati has revealed that if middle-aged people eat a small amount of blueberries regularly on a daily basis, then the process of acquisition and reduction in mental conditions can be slowed down.
In this regard, a small number of volunteers have been tested for about 12 weeks and it has yielded useful results. Robert Cricorian of the University has been researching the effects of blueberries for many years. Now they are trying to find out if middle-aged people are given a supplement of blueberries or its essential ingredients, what are the possible effects on their mental condition and related diseases?
According to Dr. Robert, terrible diseases like Alzheimer’s and dementia can increase with age. Even before that, there have been several benefits of blueberries in boosting brain and cognitive capacity. But the condition is that even if it is a small amount, it must be part of the daily diet.
The scientists included 33 people aged 50 to 65 in the survey who were on the verge of obesity. Above all, he complained of acquired dementia and memory loss.
Participants were divided into two groups, one group was given blueberry powder for 12 weeks and the other group was given fake medicine powder. Several metabolic biomarkers were detected in the blood of all participants at the beginning and later, and were also reviewed at the end of the study.
According to Dr. Robert, those who used blueberry powder had significantly better learning and mental health than others, as indicated by blood tests and biomarkers. Another major benefit was that their levels of insulin increased significantly.
Thus, we can say that blueberries not only prevent dementia and Alzheimer’s, but also help to stay away from diabetes.
