Does resveratrol improve memory?


Red wine and a substance in it called resveratrol have been getting a lot of press lately as being good for your heart. Resveratrol, an antioxidant, has received the most attention from researchers, since it seems to help prevent damage to blood vessels, reduces "bad" cholesterol and prevents blood clots. Now scientists at the University of Florida's Institute on Aging are preparing to test whether resveratrol can help improve memory and physical function in older adults. What they need for the 12-week clinical trial are volunteers who are willing to try a dietary supplement. One group will get a supplement with resveratrol while a second group gets a supplement without the antioxidant compound. Neither group will be offered glasses of red wine to test their memory.

It is one of a small number of compounds shown to extend the lifespan of flies, fish and other organisms.
