Two unrelated news publishers today served up research showing blueberries and maple syrup may contain the ingredients to fight Alzheimer’s Disease. But before you run over to IHOP, you may want to get a brief taste of the findings in these studies.
First, Medical News Today published another article demonstrating the rich nutritional value of blueberries. Nature’s rare blue gem is widely known to be full of antioxidants, but new research from the University of Cincinnati Academic Health Center found that blueberries may also improve memory.
Meanwhile, as reported by the New York Post, researchers in (where else?) Canada claim that maple syrup could have positive effects on brain cells. Studies have yet to be completed, but one hopes these scientists’ hypotheses stick.
Brain research is constant, and consumers are fed a steady diet of information regarding healthy brain foods and activities. Perhaps one of the healthiest activities would be to order a bowl of fresh blueberries with a side of pure maple syrup.
