Dr. Mary Sano answers the question: 'Can Red Wine Treat Alzheimer's Disease?'

May 4, 2009 -- Question: Can red wine be used to treat Alzheimer's disease?

Answer: There have been studies that have suggested that red wine use can lower your risk of Alzheimer's disease. And there have been some clinical trials that have examined whether or not red wine, or the active ingredients in red wine, can slow the rate of decline. At this time, though, we don't really know for sure that it has any real benefit, and there are several studies that are still underway.
