lol wild blueberries. you literally picked the healthiest fruit out there silly, it wouldn't surprise me if you could find research indicating their use in.. pretty much anything

 

not saying they aren't effective here, or anyone with PTSD should skip their serving of berries, but just don't stop there.  If you put all your eggs in the blueberry basket, you may be disappointed. Do more, expect less

Thanks, Heyguy.

 

There also seems to be some interesting brain related work with humans.

 

"Now, an important human study has confirmed the connection between blueberries and brain health.

This study showed that blueberries increase brain activity and improve working memory. It is the first to link these cognitive benefits to specific changes in brain function and improvements in brain blood flow.1

 

Brain blood flow is a vital component of brain function, memory, and cognition.2 Diminished brain blood flow is a cause of ischemic stroke, mild cognitive impairment, and neurodegenerative disorders.3-5

One of many ways that blueberries promote brain function is to improve cerebral circulation, which has strong implications in helping to combat neuro-degenerative disorders."
