Alzheimer’s and wine

ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE (AD) may be diminished by the consumption of Concord grape juice, according to recent presentations at the Neuroscience 2007 conference in San Diego. Two recent population studies associated moderate red wine and 100 fruit juice consumption with lowering the risk of AD dementia (wine) or delay in AD onset (juice). Those studies were buttressed by research presented by Dr. Lap Ho of Mt. Sinai School of Medicine showing the potentially protective effects of Concord grape juice and Cabernet Sauvignon polyphenols to slow the formation of plaques in the brain that lead to AD.

It's good to have a glass of red wine or Concord grape juice daily.
