Scientists Find Berry Compound Reduces Mental Age



This study specifically found that in a rat model this berry compound (Pterostilbene) reduced effects of aging in the brain.

 For the second part of the study, they fed aged rats one of three diets: control, or control adjusted to include either low or high concentrations of pterostilbene.

The results indicated that in aging rats, pterostilbene was effective in reversing cognitive decline and that improved working memory was linked to pterostilbene levels in the hippocampus region of the brain.

Working memory is also a function of the prefrontal cortex.
