Blueberries Reduce Age-Related Diseases
Researchers have uncovered data indicating how blueberries help to delay ageing and in turn, promote longevity. In two different models of ageing, blueberries have been shown to extend one’s life span. Blueberries contain specific flavonoid molecules which fight DNA damage and slow age-related damage to the brain cells.
Numerous studies have shown that blueberries protect memory-associated brain regions from oxidant and inflammatory damage, helping boost longevity. These enhancements arise from increased tolerance of oxidant stress and beneficial changes in the way specific genes are expressed.
