Whether it’s a new dance or a foreign language, the older you get the harder it is to learn new things. The reason? In order
to process new information our brain cells need to “talk” to each another. Yet, as we age those cells become inflamed making
it harder for them to communicate with one another. Blackberries can get the conversation flowing again. They provide potent
antioxidants known as polyphenols that zap inflammation and encourage communication between neurons, improving our ability
to soak up new information according to a 2009 Tufts University study.
