The Beneficial Effects of Fruit Polyphenols
on Brain Aging
Neurobiol Aging. 2005 (Dec); 26 Suppl 1: 128–132
Research from our laboratory has shown that nutritional antioxidants, such as the polyphenols found in blueberries, can reverse age-related declines in neuronal signal transduction as well as cognitive and motor deficits. Furthermore, we have shown that short-term blueberry (BB) supplementation increases hippocampal plasticity. These findings are briefly reviewed in this paper.
