Merry Wednesday GOKI Readers, as I mentioned in my earlier posts this week, I will post my daily health tip to boost your brain power.
Also I am sharing these tips courtesy of the calender I bought last month, appropriately titled: 365 Ways To Boost Your Brain Power, written by Carolyn Dean, M.D., Valentine Dmitriev, PhD. and Donna Raskin.

March 3, 2011 Tip To Boost Your Brain Power

Eat Blueberries

In a Newsweek article dated June 17,2002, neuroscientist James Joseph, of Tufts University, made it clear that when it comes to brain protection, there's nothing quite like blueberries, which he calls the "brain berry". Dr. Joseph attributes its health benefits to antioxidant and anti-inflammatory compounds and sees its potential for reversing short-term memory loss and forestalling many other effects of aging. The American Institute for Cancer Research recommends eating blueberries because they are " one of the best sources of antioxidants, substances that can slow the aging process and reduce cell damage that can lead to cancer". By eating only half a cup of fresh or frozen blueberries a day you can receive their antioxidant protection and benefit from their anti-aging properties. When out of season buy them frozen to have in a smoothie or mixed with yogurt and walnuts as a delicious snack.

I hope all my readers enjoy these tips and will be able to use at least one of them in their own lives and share them with anyone, be it family, friend and coworker(s) that they believe may benefit from this information.

To Your Health!!
