  • Why choose red fruits?

Red fruits are among the richest in polyphenols. They particularly contain anthocyanins (red pigments), which are potent antioxidant polyphenols.

Many studies have shown the positive effects of red fruits in delaying cognitive decline. Scientists have mainly focused on the flavonoids and their effects on human health. The most popular results are the protective effects of flavonoids on the cardiovascular system. But studies have also demonstrated that the consumption of flavonoids has a protective effect on the nervous system and helps to prevent age-related cognitive decline. Moreover, scientists have shown that stilbenes, others red fruits’ polyphenols, contribute to the prevention of neurodegenerative diseases by protecting neurons. Polyphenolic potential of red fruits presents thus an interest to prevent age-related cognitive decline.
