Few people need an excuse to have a glass of wine, but there is now good news for those who do.
A compound found in red wine and dark chocolate could improve memory, scientists say. German researchers found that resveratrol boosts short-term recall and improves concentration.The scientists, at the Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin, studied a group of 23 overweight people who took resveratrol supplements for six months, Live Science reports.
Participants took a memory test and had their brains scanned before and after taking the supplement for six months. The researchers found that these people had better memories after taking the supplement than a second group who were given a placebo.
