Grape seed extract is known to bolster the structural integrity of brain cells and brain cell networks, which is why it is currently in human clinical trials for the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease.  A new study shows that grape seed extract stimulates the production of new brain cells.

Activating genes that have rejuvenating properties to cellular health is an exciting new frontier in wellness – especially when you consider that this is a hallmark of nutrition and seldom accomplished by any symptom-suppressing drug.  New research on middle aged mice showed that grape seed extract1 had a profound effect on generating new brain cells and strengthening existing brain cell connections in the memory center of the brain (hippocampus).  This study expands the known mechanisms by which grape seed extract is helpful to memory.
