Zaw, J. J. T., Howe, P. R., & Wong, R. H. (2020). Long-term effects of resveratrol on cognition, cerebrovascular function and cardio-metabolic markers in postmenopausal women: a 24-month randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled, crossover study. Clinical Nutrition.
In this article, the effect of resveratrol supplementation on cognition, cerebrovascular function and cardio-metabolic markers in postemenopausal women was measured. It is a follow-up experiment to a trial that was performed by the same group in 2017. Supplementation with resveratrol resulted in improved cerebral blood flow velocity during rest, enhanced cognitive performance and reduced fasting insulin in this pilot-study with 118 postmenopausal women. Due to the beneficial cognitive effects and the advantageous effects of the vascular system which also influence cognition, the article suggests that resveratrol supplementation can be helpful in slowing down cognitive decline caused by ageing.
