Wine & Dementia Risk

Moderate wine drinkers are 23% less likely to develop dementia and/or Alzheimer’s disease. Resveratrol, found in fairly high levels in wine, is a naturally occurring antioxidant that decreases the stickiness of blood platelets and helps blood vessels remain open and flexible. It also inhibits enzymes that can stimulate cancer cell growth and suppress immune response.
