Strawberry, Mango Compound Kicks Dementia Symptoms to the Curb


Researchers at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies have conducted experiments on mice to find possible solutions for dementia (mice typically succumb to Alzheimer’s symptoms within a year of birth). They discovered that a daily dose of fisetin, a flavanol found in strawberries, mangos, cucumbers, and other fruit and vegetables, successfully arrested the progressive loss of memory and other deleterious symptoms associated with learning. The research was published in the journal Aging Cell.
