DSM’s resveratrol may boost memory: Animal study

Related tags Psychology

Daily intakes of a high purity resveratrol may enhance learning and memory in lab animals, suggesting that you may be able to teach old lab mice new tricks.

Attendees at the American Aging Association (AGE) annual conference heard how the DSM’s high purity resVida branded ingredient for four weeks could enhance learning and memory performance in old mice.

An additional in vitro​ experiment also found that the exposure to resVida could protect brain cell function from oxidative stress.

“These findings suggest resVida supplementation to be a viable approach for delaying age-associated reductions in learning and memory, and therefore may further help to prevent the normally occurring age-associated deterioration of cognitive performance,”​ DSM’s Dr Hasan Mohajeri, who presented the data.

“The new data on cognitive function contributes to our growing body of scientific evidence, most of which is now being done with humans,”​ said Frank DeJianne, DSM Global Business Manager for resVida.

“With so many random resveratrol sources in the market, it’s important for us to differentiate resVida with gold standard clinical, safety and regulatory programs,”​ added DeJianne.
