Brain Booster
This is another area in which there is good news most of the current advances in research form a better understanding of brain biochemistry. The primary catabolic factors are oxidation and glycation this means that the brain is terribly vulnerable to catabolic degeneration for three reasons
1. More than 50% of the dry weight of your brain is lipid or fat tissue, which is subject to oxidation.
2. The brain uses tremendous amounts of oxygen 25% of every breath you take, thus producing massive levels of free radicals.
3. Unlike your muscles which can use glucose, sugar, fat and in a pinch  even proteins for fuel the brain can use only glucose although it accounts for only 2% of your body weight it uses nearly 30% of the glucose that you burn.
This makes it highly vulnerable to glycation, no wonder conventional wisdom says if you live long enough you'll get Alzheimer's. Of course by studying centenarians we know that this is not true and the reason some people are protected may lie in their ability to produce greater levels of brain anti-oxidants. Researchers have been able to postpone brain degeneration in lab animals using a variety of experimental drugs. But the agent that was used most successfully to accomplish  extraordinary feats of increasing balance, coordination, learning and memory was not a pharmaceutical or high-tech treatment, it was blueberries. Yes blueberries these findings suggest that in addition to their known beneficial effects on cancer and heart disease phytochemicals present in antioxidant rich foods may be beneficial in reversing the course of brain and behavioral aging.
