Brain Health & Trans-resveratrol
Growing older is the largest risk factor for neurodegenerative disease, commonly known as brain health. Included in that group is Alzheimer’s, Huntington’s and Parkinson’s diseases along with ALS. Some of these are passed down in our genes, but there are ways to at least slow down the process. The good news is that resveratrol has shown that it may help with this. Resveratrol is a type of natural phenol and a phytoalexin produced by red grapes, peanuts and other plants. Trans-resveratrol is the active ingredient in resveratrol and is widely used in supplements.1 Both have beneficial effects on the human brain. Clinical trials have demonstrated that resveratrol reduces levels of amyloid-beta in cerebrospinal fluid and improves cognitive function in people with Alzheimer’s disease.2
Clinical evidence derived from randomized clinical trials suggests that resveratrol can help with memory loss by improving cerebral blood flow, cerebrospinal fluid level and performance in some cognitive tests.3
As the general population grows older, hundreds of millions of people worldwide are affected by neurological disorders. There are many clinical studies dealing with brain health and resveratrol has shown to possess ingredients that can help slow down, and in some cases, prevent neurological disorders, improve memory, as well as slow down the aging process.
Resveratrol may contribute to brain aging reversal by as much as ten years.4
