Eat this fruit to protect your brain from possible risks!

Do you want your brain to stay healthy and function well for years to come? Then you should start eating more fruit! Studies have shown that fruits like blueberries can protect your brain from age-related damage. So, eat them and enjoy their benefits!

Red fruits protect your brain from neurodegenerative diseases.

The latest research shows that red fruit consumption is booming in France. Fortunately, the French appreciate these berries, which are rich in vitamins, minerals and fiber. In this article, we are going to tell you why red fruit consumption should be abundant in your daily life.

Berries are a real source of flavonoids, a diverse group of phytonutrients (plant chemicals) found in almost all fruits and vegetables. Together with carotenoids, they help to make the colors of fruit and vegetables more vibrant.

Flavanols, a type of flavonoid, are found in berries. This gives them antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects that reduce and repair cell damage. Anthocyanins, found in red, blue, and purple berries, can cross the blood-brain barrier to protect brain cells from aging and diseases like cancer. Some recent human studies show promising results. However, more research needs to be done.

Red fruits improve memory.

According to a study of young and old adult participants, consuming blueberries increased blood flow to key areas of the brain, improving memory and alertness to required tasks.

Other tests conducted on elderly people who ate strawberries and blueberries for a few months showed better memory compared to participants in a placebo group. Other studies conducted on children who drank berry-based smoothies showed improved memory tests compared to children who drank smoothies without berries.

The aging process decreases with the consumption of berries.

Improving brain function can help combat the natural decline that occurs during the aging process. The increase in the number of new neurons in the brain from eating berries could be one of the reasons why the aging process slows down.

Recent clinical research has shown that berries can prevent age-related neurodegenerative diseases and improve movement and brain function. Berries can also alter pathways involved in inflammation, cell survival, nerve cell transmission, and the nerve cell’s ability to be flexible.

The neuroprotective effect of berries on neurodegenerative diseases has been linked to phytochemicals such as anthocyanin, catechin and quercetin. Further human studies are needed to replicate the published results.

Red fruits can prevent dementia.

Vascular dementia is caused by a blockage in arteries and veins that slows blood flow to the brain. Eating more fruits and vegetables, especially berries, appears to protect the brain. The compounds contained in the berries not only protect the brain from oxidative stress, but also counteract advanced glycation end products.

These end products, called AGEs, have been linked to other age-related changes such as Alzheimer’s disease. Alzheimer’s disease is a type of neurodegenerative disease. A general term used to describe a range of conditions affecting primarily the neurons of the human brain. These form the basis of the nervous system, which includes the brain and spinal cord.

In principle, they can neither reproduce nor replace themselves. So much so that their destruction or death is impossible for the organism. Examples of neurodegenerative pathologies include Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease and Huntington’s disease.

Red fruits help regulate your mood.

Several studies support the benefits of berries. These include protection from the negative effects of a high-fat diet, the ability to improve a person’s mood, and reduce the risk of depression. Most controlled human studies have involved blueberries. But other berries like raspberries, blackberries, and strawberries are also high in bioactive compounds that improve brain function.

By eating berries regularly along with other fruits and vegetables, you ensure that the protective compounds in the berries get into your bloodstream. This helps improve brain anatomy at any age. Take baby steps to add berries to your breakfast cereal. Put berries in a breakfast smoothie. Or add berries to a salad, entree or dessert at dinner. Berries are a healthy addition to a regular diet.
