Scientists have found an unexpected way to protect against dementia: you need to eat a popular fruit

Eating strawberries daily may help reduce the risk of dementia in some middle-aged people, according to University of Cincinnati research. New York Post.

The study results were published last month in the journal Nutrients.

In a 12-week study, 30 overweight patients who complained of mild cognitive impairment were asked to avoid eating berries. They took only a packet of powdered supplement daily, which they mixed with water and drank with breakfast.

Half of the participants, ages 50 to 65, received a powder equivalent to one cup of whole strawberries (a standard serving size), while the other half received a placebo.

The researchers tracked participants' long-term memory, mood, and metabolic health.

Amazing results

The researchers found that participants in the strawberry powder group performed better on a word list test and had a significant reduction in depressive symptoms.

“Both strawberries and blueberries contain antioxidants called anthocyanins. They are involved in a variety of health benefits, such as improving metabolism and cognitive function, said Robert Krikorian, professor emeritus in the department of psychiatry and behavioral neuroscience at the University of California College of Medicine, who studied the health effects of blueberry consumption last year.

“There is epidemiological evidence suggesting that people who regularly consume strawberries or blueberries have slower rates of cognitive decline as they age,” he continued.

Krikorian noted that strawberries also contain ellagitannins and ellagic acid, which have anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antimicrobial and anticancer properties.

Krikorian said the strawberries in his study may have improved cognitive function by reducing inflammation in the brain.

“Executive ability begins to decline in middle age, and excess abdominal fat, as in insulin resistance and obesity, will tend to increase inflammation, including in the brain,” he explained.

“So, it can be assumed that in our sample of middle-aged people who were overweight and prediabetic, there were higher levels of inflammation. This contributed to at least mild cognitive decline. Accordingly, the beneficial effects we observed may be due to decreased inflammation in the group that ate strawberries,” he said.
Future studies should include more people and give them different doses of strawberries, Krikorian said.
