Study of Resveratrol



    How Telehealth Technology is Revolutionizing Healthcare

    Researchers at Georgetown University are hoping to find out more about a tragic disease.

    The school is helping lead a study into the compound resveratrol and whether or not it can help alter or delay Alzheimer’s disease. The compound is found in tomatoes, dark chocolate, nuts and the skin of red grapes, used to make red wine.

    Patients involved in the study will take a concentrated dose of resveratrol twice a day. Researchers hope it will combat the disease by helping prevent neurons from dying.
