Resveratrol Boosts Brain Blood Flow
May 27, 2010
A new study shows that high doses of resveratrol may improve brain blood flow and could potentially boost brain health.
Resveratrol is a bioactive compound found in grapes and red wine. Interest in the compound began in 2003 when research showed that resveratrol was able to increase the lifespan of yeast cells.
NutraIngredients notes that:
“Since then studies in nematode worms, fruit flies, fish, and mice have linked resveratrol to longer lives.
Other studies with only resveratrol have reported anti-cancer effects, anti-inflammatory effects, cardiovascular benefits, anti-diabetes potential, energy endurance enhancement, and protection against Alzheimer’s.”
