Black Currants May Help Reduce The Risk Of Alzheimer’s like Blueberries!

Black currants are having a resurgence in popularity. A study published in the Journal of the Science of Food and Agriculture reported that the berries may help reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s by protecting neurons against damage from peptides associated with the disease.

Black currants are almost as powerful as blueberries in the antioxidant levels they contain. Several studies have also shown that they may also enhance mood!

Look for black currants in jellies and jams. Old Orchard Brands sells a black currant juice.  (Reported in Alternative Health)

So if Blueberries aren't your favorite, try Black Currants.....
