New study on non-alcoholic wine's polyphenols and probiotics improve cognition in Alzheimer's patients

Current findings from the Cognitive Biowine Research Project, funded by the Spanish Export and Investment Corporation (ICEX), suggest that polyphenols and probiotics in non-alcoholic wines can improve cognition in Alzheimer's patients (dementia).

This project started in July 2019 by the research team of Commercial Food Development Ltd. with the aim of developing a drink that can fight neuronal decline disorders by comparing the results of studies

. In their experiment, they de-alcoholized and concentrated red wine to increase its polyphenol content and probiotic activity, and participants would ingest this non-alcoholic wine for two weeks. By comparing the results of cognitive tests before and after the experiment, test scores increased by an average of 20%, and the results showed that the non-alcoholic wine they studied had a particularly important effect on immediate memory and judgments of time and space.
