Juice Capsules for Cognition and Memory

Start: March 12, 2020
End: March 12, 2023
Enrollment: 150

What Is This Study About?

Preventive care may delay the onset of mild cognitive impairment and forgetfulness. This two-year study will test whether the consumption of fruit and vegetable juices, in a capsule form, can improve cognition, including memory and learning. Participants will be randomly assigned to receive either the intervention, which includes daily consumption of six juice capsules and 33 grams of a soy-based beverage, or a control consisting of six placebo capsules and a regular diet. Researchers will measure changes in cognition, inflammation, and other biological markers known to be associated with cognitive decline.
