Nikki Jean From A Park In New York

She's really moving...

I thought it would be interesting to give you some more infos about blueberries:

Researches have shown that blueberry anthocyanins, proanthocyanidins, resveratrol, flavonols, and tannins inhibit mechanisms of cancer cell development and inflammation in vitro.

Some blueberry species contain significant levels of resveratrol in their skins, a phytochemical with increasing evidence as an anti-cancer compound.

In a 2007 symposium on berry health benefits reports were showing consumption of blueberries (and similar berry fruits including cranberries) may alleviate the cognitive decline occurring in Alzheimer's disease and other conditions of aging.

Interesting, isn't it?

You should eat more blueberries !

Blueberry has been a focus of anti-aging and brain support research for the past decade, with notable research coming out of the Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging at Tufts University on the ability of blueberry anthocyanins to cross the blood-brain barrier and enhance memory, cognition, and motor skills.
