Eating Strawberries Regularly May Protect Brain from Alzheimer’s

A new study, conducted by researchers from Rush University in Chicago, U.S., suggests that eating strawberries may help protect the brain from Alzheimer's by reducing inflammation.Eating Strawberries Regularly May Protect Brain from Alzheimer's

In the study, the scientists examined the brain's of 575 deceased patients with an average age of 91 years, none of whom had Alzheimer's. For more than two decades before their deaths each patient had filled in a survey annually on their diet, allowing researchers to analyze their health and food habits.

The analysis showed that adults over 65 years old who regularly ate the fruits had fewer tau proteins in their brains, which can lead to the debilitating disease at higher concentrations. Moreover, the researchers noticed that among the group that ate the most strawberries, the lowest concentration of tau proteins was observed.

Lead researcher Dr. Julie Schneider, the neuropathologist, says: “We suspect the anti-inflammatory properties of pelargonidin may decrease overall neuroinflammation, which may reduce cytokine production.”
