Berries May Boost Memory

Snacking on berries may improve your memory as you age. Researchers analyzed six years' worth of data on more than 16,000 women over 70 and found that those who ate berries most often had the slowest cognitive decline—by up to 2 1/2 years. They believe the link may be a result of anti-inflammatory substances found in berries called flavonoids (and in particular those known as anthocyanidins), which were independently associated with slower mental decline.
