Past studies have shown that berries’ potent one-two punch of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory power is especially protective for an aging brain. Scientists have identified yet another berry brain benefit. Reporting at the American Chemical Society Meeting, scientists determined that plant compounds in berries called polyphenols stimulate the brain’s natural “garbage disposal” cells that remove toxic proteins that can build up as we age.  The build-up of biochemical debris in the brain is a hallmark feature of dementia.  The researchers noted that walnuts share the same features so go nuts and berries!
