Another piece in the puzzle – cognitive benefits of resveratrol

Findings from this study demonstrate a sustained benefit of long-term low dose resveratrol supplementation on overall cognitive function.

In this small randomized placebo-controlled trial, 129 post-menopausal women received either a placebo or a low dose of resveratrol twice daily for 12 months. The results showed that regular consumption of resveratrol enhanced the cognitive functions in the participants, which could be partly attributed to an improved blood flow in the brain. The authors concluded that resveratrol might be suitable as an effective intervention to counteract the age and menopause-related cognitive decline in an ageing population.
