Who knew you could boost your brain power with berries?! This smoothie is loaded with beneficial antioxidants called anthocyanins (found in berries), which provide it with incredible brain-boosting effects. These health-promoting anthocyanins enter the brain and provide protection against inflammation, which is linked to cell aging. They also enhance our memory by improving the way our brains utilize energy from food and increase communication between individual brain cells.
Consuming 1/2 to 1 cup each day is enough to reap the benefits of these incredible berries! This smoothie contains over two cups of berries, proving it to be very effective in enhancing the way our brain functions. Improve mental clarity, reduce fatigue, improve memory and reduce your chance of getting Alzheimer's disease later in life by including this smoothie in your daily routine!
