Neuro-degenerative diseases and flavonoids

Dementia, Alzheimerís disease and Parkinsonís disease are degenerative diseases which are becoming more common with the ageing population. A few epidemiological studies show that a moderate consumption of wine has a protective effect against dementia. Wine contains flavonoids called antocyanins and catechins. Such effect has not been observed for beer or spirits, thus pointing to an effect of flavonoids.
