There is something called anthocyanins. They are high in bilberries (European blueberry), but lower in American blueberries, so I don't know if this is relevant.

It would be interesting if you were to try bilberries for comparison. If it's the anthocyanins, then bilberries will be more potent.

Here are some interesting pictures with diagrams.

After a while, I just realized I have been doing more things with more motivation and had little idea why. I went off of the blueberries 3 times and I felt awful almost immediately. Then I have felt improved after I have continued it again.

Very interesting!

I love blueberries (European at least), as a food. They are some of the best-tasting berries I know. I have never made a consistent habit of taking them daily, which may account for my lack of observed health effects.

I eat them fresh, or frozen and thawed. I've also tried some tablets made from them. Usually fresh foods are more "potent" but it appears from one study that freezing preserves the anthocyanins:

"the frozen samples did not show any significant decrease in anthocyanin level during three months of storage."

Yes, it happens sometimes. Perhaps the problem is that there are so many to choose from and there is not enough research to guide our choices.

Based on my experience, I can guarantee that huperzine A is more potent than many (or most) drugs, but you could say it is itself a drug, and you would be right. It improved memory, especially dream recall, but I felt it was too strong(!), causing retention of memories that were not worth remembering. If I recall correctly, I took it as an extract of the Chinese moss in which is occurs naturally.

I suggest that huperzine A and other centrally (CNS) active acetylcholinesterase inhibitors can be valuable as facilitators of dream interpretation.
