No cite for this one. And that is rather the point of this thread. I want you to fill in my ignorance:).
I have heard from several sources that blue berries are good for the brain. I’ve heard it numerous times on TV. And FWIW I once saw a brain supplement in the drug store for children. Blue berry extract was the first ingredient.
Also I saw my doctor recently. And I asked him if blue berries are good for the brain. He said yes, and not much more. (And FWIW he was declared doctor of the year in a local magazine. So I assume he knows what he is talking about.)
But how are blue berries good for the brain? What is the active ingredient? How does it work?
I might as well tell you all. Now that I am getting older, my mental faculties are slowing down. So I have been taking blue berries in various forms for this very reason.
Am I doing this in vain?
