Grapeseed may help Alzheimer’s

“The grape seed extract prevented the build-up of proteins in the brain that cause Alzheimer’s disease and improved brain function.”

Most of our grapes do not have seeds any more because people do not like them. This research at Flinders university, however, tends to suggest that grape seeds are helpful in preventing Alzheimer’s. It’ll be a while, as usual, before any treatments will be available, but now we need to get grape seeds back! In the mean time we can drink our reds which help brain function!
