    Everyone wants to stave-off the cognitive decline that is routinely experienced as we age. What if that decline wasn’t inevitable? As a recent study shows, there is a simple, inexpensive food that not only supports cognitive functions as we age, it can help restore brain function impaired during stroke
    To a person concerned with the health of plants, polyphenols are endogenous biomolecules that protect the plant against UV radiation and pathogens.[1]

    Well, coming out of the hardware store this afternoon, a man called to me, "Aren't you Maine Islander"? I didn't recognize him until he identified himself, a man who had owned a business I once patronized, at least 20 years ago. He has had three strokes, seems to have recovered nicely, and not only remembered my name from years past, but claimed that he remembers almost everyone's name — including his entire high school class. (The man is probably close to my age, 77).
    I didn't ask him whether he had been eating pomegranates.

    I've not eaten a pomegranate, but I've had the juice. Much of the research I'm familiar with focuses on the benefits for heart health. Good to know it's good for the brain and memory. The only thing about pomegranates is the high sugar content. A cup equals about 24 mg. of sugar.

    Mr Wizard, I posted this last year. I did a bit of research as I had the same concerns. Quite a surprise!

    @Julieanne: Thanks for the link. That the sugar is attached to antioxidants, slowing down the absorption, makes the pomegranate a very unique fruit. I also read pomegranate is good for joints, cardiovascular system, cholesterol, and a host of other conditions. Careful, I may have to place this in the "panacea" category!!
