Build­ing mus­cle, los­ing fat and hav­ing a higher sex drive will all be eas­ier with these four tips

Most us have a pref­er­ence for red or white wine – but when it comes to grapes be­fore fer­men­ta­tion, you should choose the darker va­ri­eties if you want to im­prove your mem­ory. This is be­cause of their higher lev­els of an an­tiox­i­dant com­pound called resver­a­trol, ac­cord­ing to a ro­dent study by Texas A&M Univer­sity. Re­searchers found that neu­ro­ge­n­e­sis – the growth and de­vel­op­ment of neu­rons – dou­bled in sub­jects given resver­a­trol com­pared with a con­trol group. The resver­a­trol group also had sig­nif­i­cantly im­proved blood flow to the brain, as well as lower lev­els of in­flam­ma­tion in the hippocampus, the part of the brain in­volved in long-term mem­ory and spa­tial aware­ness. Resver­a­trol is also found in peanuts and other dark berries.
