Blueberries for Your Brain
Blueberries contain high levels of flavonoids.
Flavonoids are super supportive of brain function.
In one study, participants with the most flavonoids in their diets had better cognitive function over a ten-year period than those with the least. Another study linked daily blueberry consumption to improvements in memory and increased blood flow to the brain. Proanthocyanidins (a category of flavonoid), protect the watery and fatty parts of the brain against damage from some environmental toxins. Impressive.
Plus, these little gems taste great, are rich in fiber and antioxidants and support overall health too!
Start incorporating more blueberries into your daily diet. Check out my recipe below for a beautiful blueberry sorbet that can help!
This sorbet is so lovely.

Add all ingredients except mint to your food processor and pulse until desired consistency. Top with mint. Scoop and serve OR pour into a freezer-safe container to serve later.
