resResveratrol is an antioxidant compound found in the skin of red grapes which has been said to lower the risk of death from heart disease.

Now new research published in The Journal of Neuroscience suggests that it could also boost short-term recall and improve concentration. The study was very small, just 23 overweight people who took resveratrol supplements for 6 months, having memory tests and brain scans before and after the trial.

The researchers found that these people had better memories after taking the supplement than a second group who were given a placebo.

So, keeping drinking your red wine — but don’t forget — too much and you probably won’t remember anything at all…!
