New 2020 Study in Healthy Middle-Aged Adults

A study titled "Improved metabolic function and cognitive performance in middle-aged adults following a single dose of wild Blueberry" [2] was published on the 3rd of August 2020 in the European Journal of Nutrition. This placebo-controlled study was the first to examine the cognitive effects of blueberries in healthy middle-aged (40–65 years old) adults.

The researchers concisely summarized their findings:

"The findings provide further support for the efficacy of wild blueberry on improving cognitive outcomes within this age group, particularly where there is increased cognitive demand."

Blueberries enhanced several aspects of cognitive performance, including reaction time, episodic memory, and executive functioning in this well-designed healthy human placebo-controlled study.
