Red Wine Memory

We've heard many times that a glass of red wine a day could be good for the heart. Now, studies are showing it could also help your mental health.

"They're still doing research on this, and it looks promising it can help you have better memory. Granted, after three glasses of wine that may not be true. On the other side of it, you don't want to drink too much red wine. It's a 22% risk reducing for dementia, and also just help remember things," says dietician Charlyn Fargo.

According to a study published in the journal of ‘Neuroscience', the compound in red wine, resveratrol, can help boost the memory.

But you can find that in other sources if you prefer not to drink wine. Resveratrol is also in red grapes, peanuts, blueberries and japanese knotweed.
