Researchers found that the blueberry consumption was linked with increased autophagy, which is the natural process the brain undergoes to clear out accumulation of toxic proteins. They noted that phytonutrients – plant chemicals — in blueberries may be responsible for this effect; berries are known to be high in anthocyanins
The research, presented at the Experimental Biology 2013 meeting, showed that the brains of the subjects which consumed berries for two months were better protected against radiation, which is meant to induce accelerated aging in the mice. This is only one of tons of research showing that blueberries are incredible for the brain.
