Have you ever eaten grapes right off the vine? Grapes contain a healthy brain compound called resveratrol. They can be such a sweet organic treat! However, if you find them too sour, there are pills that contain resveratrol. The effectiveness of these pills is still being researched.
Check out the book, “The Alzheimer’s Prevention Program,” by Gary Small, M.D., and Gigi Vorgan. I will blog more about their book later because it contains information on resveratrol and many ways to keep your brain happy and healthy!
Looking for a chance to up your resveratrol intake with wine? Check out the information below from an email from Cal Poly SLOCAVORE:
