Blueberries are a popular fruit, easily added to cereals, salads and desserts or eaten as a sweet treat
in their own right. They are also known by some as a "superfood," containing a wide variety of
nutrients that offer protection against conditions such as cancer and heart disease. Now, researchers
believe that they may have a part to play in the fight against Alzheimer's disease.
Lead author Robert Krikorian will present the findings of two studies - conducted by the team from the
University of Cincinnati Academic Health Center in Ohio - at the 251st National Meeting & Exposition
of the American Chemical Society (ACS).
"Our new findings corroborate those of previous animal studies and preliminary human studies, adding
further support to the notion thatblueberries can have a real benefit in improving memory and
cognitive function in some older adults," Krikorian states.
The deep blue coloring of blueberries is due to compounds called anthocyanins, which are also found
in other fruits and vegetables with similar colors, such as cranberries, red cabbage and eggplants.
Previous research has attributed protection against cardiovascular diseases, neurodegenerative
diseases and some forms of cancer to anthocyanins. It is these anthocyanins, as well as high levels
of antioxidants in the berries, that the researchers suggest are behind the beneficial effects they
believe their studies illustrate.
