Red wine compound slow progress of Alzheimer’s.
“In the experiment by researchers from across the US, 119 people with mild to moderate Alzheimer’s were given either the supplement for a year or a placebo(sugar pill). Those given the supplements started out at 500 mg/day, which was increased incrementally to 1,000 mg twice a day after around six months.”
“Their blood biomarkers were measured and their brains regularly scanned during the year. Those taking the supplements had lower levels of blood markers of the disease, although there were a few minor side effects, such as nausea, diarrhea, and weight loss. Resveratrol was also able to be crossed the blood-brain barrier and produce central nervous system effect, the researchers said.”
Resveratrol__ a compound found in red wine, peanuts, and some berries__may help prevent Alzheimer’s disease and dementia, a new study has found.
“People who was already showing early signs of the disease reported that their symptoms ___such as memory loss and cognitive issues___didn’t get worse while taking Resveratrol supplements. supplements deliver for higher levels of resveratrol than can be realistically achieved from eating and drinking.”
One 500-mg supplement__which the volunteers started with is equivalent to what’s in amount a thousand bottles of red wine.
