Researchers have found that resveratrol, an active ingredient in red wine, may have potential health benefits for Alzheimer’s disease. In this research, resveratrol targeted and neutralized the toxicity in vitro of a select set of protein arrangements, known as peptide isoforms, which have been linked to Alzheimer’s disease. These toxic peptide isoforms seem to accumulate as ‘plaques’ near areas of cell death in diseased brains. Although it is not clear whether resveratrol can cross the blood-brain barrier, the study presents several possible areas for future study.
