Telegraph: New research is showing that eating grape seeds may help fight degenerative brain conditions.
Grape seeds contain a compound which when fed to mice for six months, showed “better cognitive function” than those on a normal diet.
“Experts at the Flinders University in Adelaide, Australia, found that mice fed with grape seed extract for six months had “better cognitive function” than those on a normal diet.
They believe that the seeds could be used as a cheap treatment for preventing Alzheimer’s.
Professor Xin-Fu Zhou said the extract prevented the formation of deposits of amyloid proteins – a major cause of the disease – in the brain.
So he believed that people should think twice before spitting the seeds out.”
