Drinking moderate amounts of red wine has long been thought to reduce the risk of heart disease – a classic PCOS symptom – by boosting HDL “good” cholesterol and blocking the formation of platelets in blood vessels.
Now scientists think moderate amounts of alcohol may also reduce the risk of developing dementia. In a study, researchers at Wake Forest University found people who consumed between eight and 14 alcoholic drinks a week had a 37% lower risk of the disease than the general population.
However, people who consumed more than 14 drinks a week were at twice the normal risk of developing dementia. And people who already have memory problems should avoid alcohol altogether as it may accelerate the decline.
Why a moderate amount of alcohol seems to be good for the brain is not clear. But animal studies have shown that low amounts of alcohol stimulate the release of acetylcholine, a chemical in the brain that is important in memory.
Many doctors think the best way to reduce dementia risk is to eat a balanced diet, exercise regularly and remain socially active.
