A new study suggests that consuming strawberries in middle age may protect against cognitive decline and depression later in life. The research, involving middle-aged individuals with overweight and insulin resistance who reported mild cognitive decline, focused on the neuroprotective effects of anthocyanins, bioactive compounds found in strawberries and other berries. The small randomised trial showed that those who consumed strawberries for 12 weeks experienced a reduction in memory interference and depression.
Fascinating study! The potential neuroprotective effects of strawberries, specifically anthocyanins, on cognitive decline and depression sound promising
