Harvard Medical School HEALTHbeat gives a guide to Cognitive Fitness - number three on their list - eat purple berries!
Doctors from the trusted and world renown Harvard Medical School publish regular on line evidence based advice with recommendations on how to lead a healthier life.
It was therefore great to receive a recent HEALTHbeat email from them advertising their Guide to Cognitive Fitness, which included five foods linked to better brainpower. We were delighted to see that one of their five recommended foods were berries. Their advice stated: “Flavonoids, the natural plant pigments that give berries their brilliant hues, also help improve memory, research shows”. Anthocyanins are the subgroup of flavonoids that give fruit and vegetables their purple, blue and red colours.
Although all berries are good for you, the team at Haskapa believe haskaps are very special berries with at least 3 to 4 times the anthocyanin and three times the anti-oxidant content compared with blueberries, plus a uniquely delicious taste.
Harvard Medical School was again ranked as the USA’s number one Medical School for Research by US News & World Report. You can’t ask for a better source of health advice!
