Moderate Wine Consumption May Delay Alzheimer’s Disease, Research Shows

The U.S. Department of Agriculture defines a “moderate” amount of wine as 5 ounces a day for women and 10 ounces a day for men. When this amount was administered to mice with a disease similar to Alzheimer’s, memory loss and brain cell death was slowed, according to research reported in the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology Journal.

Dr. Giulio Maria Pasinetti of the Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York City, says “Moderate consumption is the key factor,” as drinking excessively brings with it another set of health risks.

The findings support epidemiological research that has found moderate alcohol consumption is linked to a lower risk of dementia.

The study involved 3 groups of mice that were genetically altered to have a defect that caused myloid plaques to build up in their brains over time. The scientists gave one group of mice water containing cabernet sauvignon while the second group was given water containing a substance called ethanol, which is found in alcoholic beverages. Plain water was given to the mice in the control group. After a seven month period, the mice went three days with no alcohol at all and had their memories tested through a series of maze tests.

The mice who were given the wine escaped from the maze significantly faster than either the mice drinking plain water or the water containing ethanol.

Separate studies which indicate that moderate wine consumption may protect the heart, combined with these new findings lead Pasinetti to think that older people can drink wine in moderate amounts as part of a healthy regimen as long as they are in a good state of health without metabolic syndrome, high blood pressure, liver problems, alcohol dependency issues, or other alcohol-related problems.

At least one critic of conventional medicine felt the results of the test proved something beyond just the health benefits of wine.

Frank Mangano’s commentary:

While this information certainly points out the benefits of moderate wine consumption, I say go straight for the gusto and eat some red grapes or pick up a bottle of grape seed extract. After all, that is where the power of red wine lies.

I personally supplement with ”Resveratrol” by the company Nature’s Way. This is a synergistic, high-quality formula that contains red wine extract, red wine powder, Japanese Knotweed and grape seed extract. This is a powerful blend of antioxidants that protects cells from the damage of free radicals.
