  • Berries May Slow Memory Loss

    April 26, 2012 -- Eating berries at least once a week may protect the brain from age-related memory loss, a large new study shows.

    The study included more than 16,000 women who are taking part in the Nurses' Health Study.

    Blackberry season starts the 5th of Mat here in my local U-pick field. Nom!!!!
    I'll probably eat TOO many the first week... and I don't care.

    And that's why I'm here eating HFLC Primal/Paleo.

      I love going to U pick farms! We have so much fun, and the berries are so delicious! I always freeze some for the groklings' smoothies.

        Berries are histamine-promoting, and histamine's involved in formation and maintenance of memory. I believe that's a significant biochemical factor in this phenomenon.

        I have high histamine levels and a natural photographic memory. I have to watch that I don't eat too many histamine-promoting foods because they give me major allergic symptoms, including low blood pressure and chronic catarrh.

        So ... if you're becoming forgetful, try not to forget to eat berries.
