Red Wine May protect against Brain Damage

Consuming  red wine may help to protect the brain from damage following a stroke, according the researchers, with Scientists at Johns Hopkins University claiming that resveratrol, which is a compound found in both the skins and seeds of red grapes, offers a 'protective effect'.

According to Sylvain Dore, an associate professor at the university's School of Medicine,  this particular element helps to increase levels of heme oxygenase, an enzyme already known to protect the brain's nerve cells from damage.

In case of a stroke, Professor Dore reportedly suggests that a person's brain, including those who wear medical alert jewellery, is ready to protect itself thanks to greater levels of the enzyme, but he stressed that more research is required.

As scientists indicate, this is not the first instance of red wine having supposed benefits to wellbeing. Indeed, according to Health Castle, those who drink red wine have a 30 to 50 per cent lower risk of heart problems.

Studies on wine and health have sprung up more than the vineyards in Australia during the recent years-each study concluding that more research is required. No earth shattering evidence has come up either for or against wine drinking. Till studies can be conclusive, delWine recommends moderate intake of wine-2-3 glasses for men and 1-2 for women. If you don’t drink alcohol for any reason, there is no reason to start drinking purely for health reasons.- editor
