The Concord Grape Commands Attention at Major Scientific Conference
Date:12/9/2009

HARROGATE, England, Dec. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Research presented this week at the 4th International Conference on Polyphenols and Health (ICPH) further demonstrates that Concord grape juice may support control of blood pressure and healthy brain function in certain population groups. The Concord grape has long been studied for its health benefits and its association with healthy aging, and researchers are now also seeking to understand the compounds within the grape that are responsible for these health outcomes.

In this investigation, 12 older adults with early memory changes were randomly assigned to consume either 100% Concord grape juice or a placebo beverage for 12 weeks. Each subject was assessed with measures of verbal and spatial memory before and after the intervention. While there were no differences between the groups at baseline, following the treatment, those consuming Concord grape juice demonstrated significant improvement in list learning (p= .04) and trends suggested improved short-term retention (p= .10) and spatial memory (p= .12).

Krikorian reported, "Our preliminary findings suggest that supplementation with Concord grape juice may provide benefit for older adults with early memory changes and increased risk for neurodegeneration." He added, "While further stud
