DSM Nutritional Products unveiled another study on its proprietary high-purity resveratrol ingredient at the American Aging Association (AGE) annual conference. The new study focuses on the cognitive benefit of resVida resveratrol and its ability to improve associative and spatial learning and memory performance in aged mice.
The study, headed and presented by DSM’s Hasan Mohajeri, tested aged mice after multiple doses of dietary supplementation with resVida for at least four weeks. After this period, researchers were able to show that supplementation with resVida significantly improved associative- and spatial- learning and memory in daily situations of the elderly mice. In another in-vitro component of the study, researchers found that exposure to resVida significantly protected brain cell function when exposed to oxidative stress. Mohajeri concluded, “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 resVida is a 99% pure, nature-identical form of trans-resveratrol, the active component of red wine associated with a number of health benefits, including potent antioxidant and promoter of cardiovascular health. resVida is a dietary ingredient supported by a full safety package. resVida also has self-affirmed GRAS status and can be used in dietary supplements, foods and beverages.
