Recent studies have found that eating grapes daily can help prevent onset of alzheimer’s and slow down cognitive decline. This breakthrough can help many of those who suffer from cognitive decline and are at risk of developing Alzheimer’s.

The study was taken with a group of ten participants around the age of 72 with all showing signs of mild cognitive decline. The participants were served grape powder equal to about 2.25 cups of the fruit while a control group was given placebo powder which tasted and looked the same as the grape powder. The results showed that the group that was given the the grape powder showed that the cognitive decline was slowing down while the control group was still at the same rate of cognitive decline.

The researchers concluded their investigation with an outcome of grapes being able to protect “against significant metabolic decline in Alzheimer-related areas of the brain.” The researchers noted that the grapes also showed signs of memory preservation among the participants who were given the grape powder.
