Pomegranate Juice Augments Memory and fMRI Activity in Middle-Aged and Older Adults with Mild Memory Complaints

Figure 8

Summary of study results. Our data suggest that the antioxidant properties of pomegranate produce increased task related cerebral blood flow, with lateralized effects for verbal versus visual memory challenge, which in turn increased cerebral blood flow facilitates memory performance. Metabolic measures confirm the increase in polyphenols among the experimental group.
