As each participant consumed between 2 to 2 1/2 cups each day, their intake of blueberries was very high.
Studies have also suggested that blueberries might also become helpful in the improvement of memory, but also in slowing down or postponing the onset of other cognitive issues frequently related to ageing. Even if only half of the research is true, then it is certainly worth a try….
