Red wine and dementia prevention

The disease process of Alzheimer’s disease, whereby abnormal amyloid protein production and deposition in the brain, has been found to be reduced by a polyphenol compound that is in high quantities in red wine. The compound has also been isolated from peanuts and berries, and was tested on brain cells in a laboratory. Scientists are unsure of the application of their findings to real life, but hope to discover how the compound works on brain cells and to use it as a possible future treatment for Alzheimer’s disease.
