In the first human study of its kind, researchers demonstrated that anthocyanin-rich wild blueberries are highly beneficial in maintaining memory function. The study, conducted by a team led by Dr Robert Krikorian at the University of Cincinnati, confirmed that wild blueberry supplemented diets improved memory function and mood in older adults with early memory decline. (Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry 2010: 58, 3996-4000). Indeed when you read material published by some of the worlds leading authorities on dementia especially, one word keeps coming up time after time after time, ANTIOXIDANTS.

Wild Blueberries can protect against DNA damage a leading driver of aging and cancer. Studies conducted by Mary Ann Lila Smith, PhD, Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Sciences, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, indicate that compounds in Wild Blueberries may be effective inhibitors of both the initiation and promotion stages of cancer. (Journal of Food Science. Vol. 65, No. 2. 2000)
