For those who do not drink wine, a recent study suggests you should. A compound found in red wine is shown to help you remember better and fight aging, according to new research.
Resveratrol, an antioxidant found in red wine, as well as skin of red grapes, peanuts, blueberries, Japanese knotweed, and dark chocolate, is touted for its anti-aging, heart health, and anti-cancer abilities.
What the Experts Say
Professor Ashok K. Shetty, Ph.D. of the Department of Molecular and Cellular Medicine and Director of Neurosciences at the Institute for Regenerative Medicine and a team of researchers produced “novel evidence that resveratrol treatment in late middle age is efficacious for improving memory and mood function in old age,” reported eurekaalert.org.
In a similar pilot study, Veronica Witte, a neuroscientist at the Charité Universitätsmedizin Berlin in Germany, concludes that a “high-level intake of resveratrol in the elderly may convey protective effects on cognitive functions,” wrote Live Science.
The study shows that those who took resveratrol supplement have improved memories compared to the second group who received a placebo. Their brain scans also show that there is more communication in the hippocampus, a region in the brain responsible for cognitive abilities, reported Daily Mail.
