Strawberries are good for the brain! Several of the latest studies consistently showed that strawberry consumption is a simple way to improve cognitive function. Flavonols (quercetin and kaemferol) in strawberries may be associated with a slower rate of cognitive decline with older age.
A study presented by researchers from the Chicago Healthy aging Project (CHAP) showed older adults who consume strawberries at least once per month have less cognitive decline. More specifically, women who consumed more than one serving of strawberries per month had a 16.2-percent slower rate of cognitive decline versus those who consumed less.
Did you know that strawberries pack more Vitamin C than oranges do! Not only does Vitamin C act as a powerful antioxidant that helps to prevent free-radical damage, it’s also a nutrient that is essential to the production, growth, maintenance, & repair of blood vessels, cartilage, collagen, bones, teeth, & scar tissue.
