Compound from grapes may help memory loss

A compound found in common foods such as red grapes may help prevent age-related decline in memory according to Texan researchers.

Resveratrol, an antioxidant that is found in the skin of red grapes, as well as in red wine, peanuts and some berries, has been widely associated with preventing heart disease, but Dr Ashok K. Shetty and a team from the A&M Health Science Center College of Medicine believe it also has positive effects on the hippocampus, an area of the brain that is critical to functions such as memory, learning and mood.

“The study provides novel evidence that resveratrol treatment in late middle age can help improve memory and mood function in old age,” Shetty said.
