The study reported that pelargonidine, found in strawberries, may be associated with fewer tau neurofibrillary tangles in the brain. It is noteworthy that tau tangles are one of the hallmarks of Alzheimer's disease, which is caused by abnormal changes in tau proteins that accumulate in the brain, according to the Medical Express website.

The study found that adults over 65 who ate fruit regularly had fewer tau proteins in their brains.

And the website of the British newspaper “Daily Mail” indicated that the results were based on a study that included anatomy of the brains of 575 people after their death, in which their diet was evaluated and their condition was followed up, as well as their cognitive ability was tested annually for 20 years before their death. The experts noted a lower concentration of tau proteins in the group that ate strawberries.

"This study gives us hope in how certain food components such as strawberries can help with brain health," said study co-author Dr. Pooja Agarwal. 

She added that this simple change anyone can make in their diet, and added: "There is a need for More research to understand the role of nutrition in Alzheimer's disease," she was quoted by Medical Express as saying.
