Do you want to improve your memory? Read, do crossword puzzles and… drink wine

by Marta Burgués

Wine has many beneficial properties for mind and body. It prevents heart disease, lowers cholesterol, is good to feel more energetic and get rid of depression… And it also improves memory.

If you start working with little desire or you should get to study, this research can give you some joy, since the conclusion is that wine keeps the mind awake. The research by Rush Medical College in Chicago states that a very moderate alcohol consumption serves to slow cognitive decline with age.

Specifically, red wine stands out thanks to its polyphenols, which protect the brain. This new study builds on earlier studies on nutrition, about the effects red wine produce in dementia. In their research they developed the so-called “mind diet”, that mixes Mediterranean diet, especially with fish, vegetables, nuts and wine, and the DASH diet (which stands for “Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension”, which lowers blood pressure.

In addition to wine, there are other foods that are considered beneficial for memory, as in the case of nuts. And some vegetables and legumes, such as beans, along with whole grains, fish, chicken and olive oil.

Those who followed the “mind diet” experienced somewhat slower cognitive decline. Regarding the total cognitive impairment, they still can not state definitive conclusions, since they hope to conduct more specific studies to reach a conclusion. Now you have more reasons to drink wine.
