Study Finds Flavonoids May Improve Memory and Executive Function






Previous research has found that flavonoids may help improve cognitive
function due to their neuroprotective properties and ability to enhance
neuronal function. Now a new study has found that a flavonoid-rich wild
blueberry drink may help improve memory and executive function in children.





Fifty-four children between the ages of 7 and 10 participated in the
study. They drank a wild blueberry drink containing 253 mg of flavonoids or a
placebo. Verbal memory, executive function, and reading efficiency were
assessed at baseline and 2 hours after consuming the drink.





Participants in the blueberry drink group had enhanced verbal
memory performance compared to participants in the placebo group. They also had
improved reaction times with no negative effects on accuracy. No significant
effects were seen for reading efficiency.





The study was conducted by researchers from the University of
Reading and the University of London. It was published online ahead of print on
October 16, 2019 in the European
Journal of Nutrition
