A new study has been published that followed over sixteen thousand women over the age of 70, tracking their berry intake. The researchers found that those who ate more blueberries and strawberries had a slower rate of developing memory problems by about two and a half years.
The women that ate more berries also had a higher income and excerised more, both of which lead to better health. Due to these factors, researchers could not say if the berries were the contributing factor for better memory. However, this study shows that perhaps berries merit more research, as they could improve memory and push back memory related problems.
