The Blueberries are Coming
  …and you should experience the harvest

Click here to Check out
For the Love Blueberries



Remember that hike up Foss Mountain during your last visit?  Well, during the month of August, Mother Nature transforms it into a blueberry wonderland.  There are professional harvesters that use rakes to collect the blueberries in the fields.  Some say, the bears can be found up there eating the blueberries too.  Chef Ben uses these blueberries many of his recipes. 
Here are some nutrition facts:

  • Blueberries are very low in calories.
  • Blueberries are among the highest anti-oxidant value fruits.
  • The phyto-chemical compounds in the blueberry help rid off harmful oxygen-derived free radicals from the body and protect the human body against cancers, aging, degenerative diseases, and infections.
  • Chlorogenic acid in these berries help lower blood sugar levels and control blood-glucose levels in type-II diabetes mellitus condition.
  • Fresh berries contain a small amount of vitamin C, vitamin A and vitamin E. Altogether these vitamins work as potent anti-oxidants, which help limit free radical mediated injury to the body.
  • The berries also contain a small amount of B-complex group of vitamins such as niacin, pyridoxine, folates and pantothenic acid. It contains very good amounts of vitamin B-6, niacin, riboflavin, pantothenic acid and folic acid. These vitamins are acting as co-factors help the body metabolize carbohydrates, protein, and fats.

Read this new study…

With the growing threat of Alzheimer´s for millions of Baby Boomers (those born from 1946 to 1964) it only makes sense to find ways that may prevent the mind-robbing disease. Research last year uncovered possible evidence that resveratrol found in red wine may help in preventing cognitive decline. Now, a new study is looking at another type of alcohol that may also ward off dementia and Alzheimer´s disease.

Researchers from Reading University have found that three glasses of champagne per week could help prevent the onset of brain disorders such as dementia and Alzheimer´s disease. The team discovered that a compound found in black wine grapes (Pinot noir and Pinot meunier) help fight forgetfulness.

Champagne, which is made using these types of grapes, could now be just the right beverage for tackling dementia before it has a chance to set in. This is not the first time the bubbly has been touted for its health benefits. The same Reading team found in 2009 that champagne is good for the heart and blood circulation.

The memory-helping compound in champagne, however, is much different: phenolic acid. About 80 percent of all champagne is made from the two black grape varieties blended together with a white Chardonnay grape.

The researchers, led by Jimmy Spencer, a biochemistry professor at Reading, found that phenolic acid provokes a noticeable boost to spatial memory, allowing the ability to recognize surroundings and help people find their way home.

“Dementia probably starts in the 40s and goes on to the 80s. It is a gradual decline and so the earlier people take these beneficial compounds in champagne, the better,” Spencer told Mail Online´s Valerie Elliott.

Spencer said that while his team´s study was conducted on rats, there is a strong confidence among the team that the results would be remarkably similar in the human brain.

For the study, rats were either given champagne daily, mixed in their feed for six weeks or not given champagne at all. Each rat was also allowed to run through a maze to find an edible treat. The task was then repeated five minutes later to see if the rat remembered where it had retrieved the first treat and where it could find another.

The rats that did not have champagne mixed in their feed had a 50 percent success rate in the maze experiment. However, after champagne was added to the feed, success rates shot up to 70 percent on average.

“The results were dramatic. After rats consumed champagne regularly, there was a 200 per cent increase of proteins important for determining effective memory. This occurred in rats after just six weeks. We think it would take about three years in humans,” Spencer told Mail Online.

“This research is exciting because it illustrates for the first time that moderate consumption of champagne has the potential to influence cognitive functioning such as memory,” he added.

Spencer and his team now hope to conduct the experiments on older human subjects, asking them to drink champagne for three years to further test the mind-aiding benefits of the fizz.

“This is an interesting study, especially for those who enjoy a glass of bubbly,” said a spokesperson for the Alzheimer´s Society. “However, people should not start celebrating just yet. This is the first time a link between champagne and dementia risk reduction has been found. A lot more research is needed.”
