Nothing’s better than hearing that the delicious foods we’re already eating also have some pretty big health benefits. (Case in point: dark chocolate and avocados.) So it’s not surprising that the media lit up recently with the exciting news that drinking red wine could be beneficial to our brains.
A study had found that resveratrol — an antioxidant found in red wine — could help slow Alzheimer’s disease. It was suggested that if resveratrol can slow Alzheimer’s, and resveratrol is in red wine, then consuming red wine must also ease the progression of Alzheimer’s.
