Are Strawberries Good for Your Brain?

According to a randomized, crossover, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial published in 2023, an ounce of strawberry powder a day made older people smarter. Specifically, the researchers found that it could increase processing speed and enhance episodic memory (the kind of memory that does things like remember what you had for breakfast or who sat next to you in third grade).

Another 2023 study of overweight middle-aged men and women who suffered from “subjective cognitive decline” (that is, they self-reported feeling less sharp than previously) also found that 12 weeks of strawberry powder reduced a phenomenon known as “memory interference.” In other words, they were less likely to experience older memories blocking the formation of newer ones.

The strawberry powder also lowered the participants’ likelihood of experiencing symptoms of depression.
