    Blueberry Juice
    cjh1203 posted:
    I just received a WebMD newsletter with a link to a slideshow about juices. This is what it said about blueberry juice:
    "Good Choice: Blueberry JuiceSubstances in blueberries may help keep the brain healthy. In a small study, researchers looked at the effect of blueberry juice on memory in adults in their seventies who had age-related memory decline. Those who drank 2 1/2 cups of blueberry juice for 12 weeks had significant improvement on learning and memory tests compared to those who drank a non-juice beverage. So choose blueberry juice to boost brain health."

    I had not heard this before -- pretty interesting.

    Judith L London, PhD responded:
    Hi Carol,

    Grape and pomegranate juice are also beneficial to the brain. Some studies show that having 16 oz. of apple juice, or 2-3 apples a day, boost the acetycholine in the brain, which is how Aricept works, to improve memory.

    Fresh blueberries, blackberries, grapes and strawberries have beren shown to help the brain, too.

    Thanks for the blueberry juice update,
