Concord Grape Juice Shown to Help Keep Hearts and Minds Healthy
Date:12/9/2009

HARROGATE, England, Dec, 9 /PRNewswire/ -- An amazing 80 percent of Americans are currently consuming, or would be interested in consuming foods or beverages for health benefits.(1) For adults of all ages, a desire to maintain overall wellness is of utmost importance and likely driving interest in these 'functional foods'. Research presented this week at the 4th International Conference on Polyphenols and Health (ICPH) further demonstrates that Concord grape juice may play a role in the preservation of health, by supporting blood pressure control and healthy brain function in certain populations.

New Food for Thought

Growing evidence suggests the consumption of antioxidant-rich foods and beverages, such as fruits and vegetables and their 100% juices, may help slow and possibly even reverse age-related cognitive decline. Preliminary research from the Department of Psychiatry, University of Cincinnati was presented by Dr. Robert Krikorian at the ICPH, which demonstrated that drinking Concord grape juice may provide a benefit for older adults with early memory decline.

Dr. Krikorian included 12 older adults with early memory loss in his study. Each participant drank 100% Concord grape juice or a calorie-matched placebo for 12 weeks and was tested with measures of memory function including both verbal and non-verbal tasks. Krikorian reported, "While there were no differences between the groups at baseline, following treatment, those drinking Concord grape juice demonstrated significant improvement in list learning. In addition, trends suggested improved short-term retention and spatial (nonverbal) memory." He added, "These results with Concord grape juice are very encouraging and certainly warrant additional study. A simple, easy-to-incorporate dietary intervention that could improve or protect memory function, such as drinking Concord grape juice, may be beneficial for the aging population."
