Red Wine May Boost Memory Thanks To Resveratrol

Red wine may do more than just pair well with your favorite pasta dish, it could improve you memory.

Researchers found a special compound in red wine that has been shown to improve people’s memory by the way it breaks down sugar in the body.

In a study, published in the Journal of Neuroscience, researchers at the Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin in Germany found better short-term memory in those taking the red wine compound known as resveratrol. Resveratrol is a substance found in red wine and dark chocolate that is already known for its anti-aging properties, but now research reveals an improvement in short-term memory too.
