What’s in it for my brain?
Blueberries contain anthocyanins (a group of flavonoids with antioxidant activity), which are thought to be responsible for their beneficial health effects. Anthocyanins are also responsible for the strong colour of a lot of fruit and veg - so if you’re looking to up your antioxidant ante, check out the brightest hues first.
Anthocyanins can positively impact learning, concentration and memory across all ages. They do this by helping to increase your brain’s neuronal signalling abilities and glucose distribution.
Blueberries also have protective effects which can prevent age-related neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s and improve motor and cognitive function. The reason for the beneficial effects of flavonoids on Alzheimer’s could be because the anthocyanins stop the build-up of toxic deposits in the brain (known as amyloid beta plaque).
