Resveratrol May Improve Brain Performance

Resveratrol has been linked with heart health since the 1970's. Now a study has been released suggesting that resveratrol may also improve cognitive function in more mature adults.

The study included adults with no known cognitive dysfunction. For a period of 90 days, they took either 300 mg of resveratrol, 1000 mg of resveratrol or a placebo daily.

The researchers found that the 1000 mg dose increased the participant's processing speed and also increased blood flow to the brain. They posited that these effects could lead to better long-term memory.

The researchers were based at The University of Florida and presented their results at The Gerontological Society of America, which took place from November 14 to 18, 2012.

Previous studies have shown resveratrol to be a powerful antioxidant with health benefits that include increasing energy levels, lowering cholesterol, improving brain health, reducing the appearance of aging, lowering the risk of lung cancer, improving metabolism, regulating blood glucose levels in diabetics and improving liver function.

This antioxidant can be found in red wine, grapes, grape seed extract, and peanuts. A glass of red wine a day can provide a good amount of resveratrol, but excess drinking will reverse the positive health benefits. Another good way to get resveratrol is through a high quality supplement.
