Raisin Brain

By October 11, 2023No Comments

Older adults who ate raisins daily for six months saw a range of cognitive improvements. In this study, 80 independently living men and women, at least age 70, took a placebo or 50 grams of raisins per day. The raisins contained 9.48 mg of polyphenols, a powerful antioxidant.

After six months, while the placebo group showed no improvement, test scores for cognition and mental-state had improved significantly for the raisin group. Participants in the raisin group also had better immediate and delayed recall, spatial recognition, decision-making capacity, and use of language. Those consuming raisins also scored higher on quality-of-life questionnaires.
