Super Berries for Super Memory Enhancement for Older Adults
Natural health researchers have discovered the health enhancing power of berries. They've found that good old-fashioned dark berries have been shown to have more potency and antioxidant power than any other source.
Research has shown that dark berries are indeed superberries, loaded with more health promoting and enhancing capabilities than researchers ever considered before. It's common knowledge that fruits and vegetables have always been a superfood team designed to feed your body with health-giving powers, but dark berries have been proven to provide super compounds such as age-defying antioxidants, fiber, phytochemicals, flavonoids, omega-6 and omega-9 fatty acids—more than any single food source under the sun. You may be wondering specifically what kind of berries I'm talking about. Here they are:
These amazing superberries include: Black Cherry, Black Raspberry, Cabbage Palm (acai), Blackberry, Black Currants, Blueberry, Cranberry, Lycium (goji berry), Acerola, and Bilberries.
Black Cherry is famous for its ability to reduce pain and inflammation...so much so that studies tell us that these same compounds found in Black Cherry may also reduce the risk of colon cancer.
The extremely dark pigment of Black Raspberry has been shown to be high in antioxidant power, and a warrior against disease. This superberry helps to fight heart disease, improve vision, preserve memory, and help fend off stroke, Alzheimer's, arthritis, and other age-related health concerns.
The superberry called Acai (ah-SAH'-ee) comes from the Cabbage Palm, and packs 10 times more antioxidants than red grapes and about 30 times more anthocyanins than red wine! Together they target harmful free radicals and help to stop premature aging by improving cell growth and regeneration. The disease fighting properties of this superberry have been talked about on MSNBC News and even discussed on The Opray Winfrey Show because the acai berry is considered to be the world's number one superfood.
Blackberry is another superberry, known to be heart friendly by reducing oxidative stress and keeping the entire cardiovascular system at its best. Black Current stays busy as a powerful cholesterol buster, especially the LDL bad cholesterol—and is believed to be more effective than fish oil supplements. Don't forget the delicious Blueberry... shown to clear brain fog and boost memory and mental capacity. Cranberry has been used for centuries to protect and support the bladder, particularly helpful throughout the years.
Lycium or Goji berries has a long history as a powerful blood tonic. Herbalists have relied on Lycium (Goji) to help with symptoms such as ringing in the ears, blurred vision, male sexual problems, and irritability.
