- Compounds found in colored berries have been shown to (possibly) have a protective effect against Alzheimer’s and dementia.
- Blueberries in particular have drawn the attention of researchers. See article: Blueberries May Help Prevent Alzheimer’s, New Research Suggests
- Pomegranates have also been investigated in many studies. See article: Pomegranate Compound Could Help Fight Alzheimer’s
- To me, the evidence that berries support brain health is convincing. And, they’re high in other beneficial nutrients… and taste great. So I eat a half cup of blueberries a day (with some raspberries, when they’re available).

- Folks eating low-carb diets can get some of the benefits of berries by taking extracts.
