Strawberry Fields Forever!

And to think we were just talking Strawberries last week!

I saw a quick note on this morning’s news on berries and how having one cup of strawberries per week, and half a cup of blueberries per week can help improve your memory.   As a mom, wife and career woman, I often find myself wondering where I left anything from my car keys, to the remote…  even my cup of coffee, which is pretty much SCARY, especially in the mornings!   How many times have you had to check, and double-check your purse to see if your wallet, car keys,  makeup bag –very important-  and cel phone are there? There are days when I am convinced that either I am an extremely confused woman, or I am definitely losing it!

While health professionals are often skeptic on providing assurances on the role that a good nutrition has on an individual’s overall health, having a healthy, nutritious eating habit DOES NOT HURT!  

According to Elizabeth Landau, CNN.com Health Writer/Producer, ” …Here’s how berries might help: mitochrondria are energy generators of brain cells, and have been thought to also produce substances toxic to the brain that lead to Alzheimer’s disease. These toxic compounds are called “free radicals,” which damage brain cells and impair cellular processing. Berries are rich in flavonoids, which can act as antioxidants, interacting with free radicals before they cause damage”.

The article’s focus goes back between positive and skeptic feedback on the nutrition benefits of berries, stating that perhaps the findings might be skewed because of other dietary factors.  You can come to your own conclusion by checking the article our here:   http://thechart.blogs.cnn.com/2012/04/26/berries-may-delay-memory-decline/

Just in case, it’ll be a strawberry field-trip day for me!
