BRAIN BERRIES (BLUEBERRIES) IMPROVE BRAIN FUNCTION IN OLDER PEOPLE

A study published in the Journal Applied Physiological Nutritional Metabolism in July 2017, researchers from the University of Exter in England, showed subjects given dark blueberry juice once daily, had a significant increase in their brain’s activity compared to the ones who took a placebo.
I eat blueberries often in whole grain cereals, greek yogurt and by themselves in a bowl.

POLYPHARMACEUTICALS CAUSES FALLS

Polypharmaceuticals is defined as taking 4 or more drugs per day. They can be prescription and over the counter or behind the counter (psedoephedine) medicines.
A study published in the Journal, Injury prevention, studied 687 people by the University of Auckland, New Zealand.
The study found that taking multiple medicines causes falls among people of all ages.
Most people think this is a problem among older adults, but a new study found that young and middle-aged adults were 2.5 times as likely to have fall related injuries as
those who took fewer medicines.
The drugs most associated with falling were blood pressure and cholesterol lowering drugs, including statins example – Lipitor.
My advise is if you are taking 4 or more RX drugs, be very careful when walking, getting out of bed or while driving a car.

LEAFY GREENS UP- DEMENTIA DOWN

Researchers from Rush and Tufts University monitored the brain function of 960 older people with an average age of 81 for about five years. They found that the people who reported eating at least once daily serving of kale, spinach, or another green leafy vegetables had the brain function of someone 11 years younger.
Scientists speculate that eating these types of foods can help protect against stress and inflammation, as well as heart disease and diabetes, which take a long=term toll on your brain.
