A recent article published in the Annals of Neurology reports that berries intake, slow memory decline in older women.

Dr. Devore says that flavonoid consumption in berries “could be a potential strategy for reducing cognitive decline in older adults.”

Make sure you eat a handful of berries a day. I always have them clean so they are ready to eat.

Goji Berries have been used in China and Tibet for hundreds of years. Outside of these countries they are only available in their dried state. They are rich in vitamins B, C, E, beta carotene, folate, calcium, iron, potassium, zinc, fiber and omega 3 and 6.

Goji berries have phytochemicals that enhance immunity, have antileukemia and anticancer properties as well as protection from atherosclerosis and diabetes.

I love to eat them by mixing them with cashew nuts or almonds.
