Wild blueberries boost young people’s mood

© University of ReadingConsuming flavonoid-rich foods such as wild blueberries can have a significant positive effect on young people’s mood, a University of Reading study has found.

In two trials published in Nutrients, children and young people consumed a drink containing wild blueberry or a matched placebo and were asked to rate their mood on a numerical scale before and after the drink.  In both trials, participants recorded a significant increase in positive mood after drinking the wild blueberry-infused drink.
