Effect of Grapes Dietary Supplement on Brain Metabolism and Cognition


Participants are sought who are experiencing problems with memory, communication skills, or general mental state. These changes could be the result of normal aging, or they could be early warning signs of developing dementia in the future. Through this study, we aim to determine whether grape consumption can affect brain metabolism and thinking abilities. Subjects who meet entry criteria will be randomized to ingesting grapes, in the form of a freeze-dried powder, on a daily basis, or ingesting a non-grape-containing (placebo) substitute.
