Sparkly Factoid: Fruit Feeds Your Brain!

The reason for fruit's brain-boosting effect? It's all about the flavonoids, those amazing antioxidants that fight disease and might be one of your best defenses against cognitive decline. In a study, people who had the highest flavonoid intake performed best throughout a 10-year period on tests of verbal fluency, logical reasoning, and visual memory.

I have just started a blog myself in an attempt to begin (publicly) a healthier lifestyle.

I really like your blog and definitely will enjoy reading your progress posts.

I also really like your attitude. It's strong and yet has a soft side.

Ive been avoiding that for years.
