Resveratrol has positive impact on brain health & Alzheimer’s disease prevention | David Sinclair

Parent Episode: Dr. David Sinclair on Informational Theory of Aging, Nicotinamide Mononucleotide, Resveratrol & More

Resveratrol, a plant-based compound found in red grapes and peanuts, exerts beneficial effects on the human brain. Clinical trials have demonstrated that resveratrol reduces levels of amyloid-beta in cerebrospinal fluid and improves cognitive function in people with Alzheimer's disease. One of the mechanisms associated with resveratrol's actions is the activation of autophagy, a cellular defense program that targets old, damaged proteins for destruction and recycling. In this clip, Dr. David Sinclair and Dr. Rhonda Patrick discuss the brain health benefits associated with resveratrol.
