Benefits of Black berries
Motor and Cognitive Skills
blackberry intake may have a positive impact on motor and cognitive skills, which often decline with age.

The rats that ate a diet supplemented by 2 percent with blackberries displayed better motor performance, balance and coordination than the control group. The blackberryeating rats also showed significantly greater shortterm memory performance.
