At last some welcome research from America which is very easy to agree with. Scientists at the Department of Agriculture are suggesting that eating strawberries may help you protect your brain against ageing. Apparently strawberries are high in polyphenols – maybe they are all the little seeds that stick in your teeth – either way they have anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Blueberries have similar properties.
The research must have been fun. Cream teas everyday in future for me !
The researchers do go on to say that beetroot, aubergines and red cabbage are also good sources of anti-oxidants, but they don’t go down so well with cream teas.
