Resveratrol Might Prove To Be Helpful In Fight Against Alzheimers
A new government sponsored study will examine whether or not resveratrol can alter or delay the destruction of the brain in people with mild to moderate Alzheimer's disease. 5.3 million Americans are affected by Alzheimer's, a fatal illness that has no treatment or cure. Participants of the study will receive either a placebo or capsules of pure resveratrol. Resveratrol is found in the skin of red grapes, tomatoes, dark chocolate and nuts. Studies on non-humans have shown it activates a gene that protects the body and brain from aging. Read the complete details of this study and a highlight of one of its participants featured in USA TODAY.
