Moderate consumption of red wine is not only good for the heart and reduces the risk of dementia, but can also prevent hearing loss. This conclusion was reached by researchers who conducted a study at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit. Patients who receive resveratrol supplements before being subjected to prolonged loud noise have a lower risk of deafness , according to the results of the study.

Resveratrol is a natural chemical compound, polyphenol, found in grapes, red wine and other foods and beverages.It is useful for various health problems, including anti-aging cells.It

protects the body from inflammatory processes and reduces the processes of aging, cognitive declineand the risk of hearing loss.

Hearing loss affects a large percentage of people over the age of 60, and nowadays they are much younger.

The results of the study are published in the journal Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery .

The natural supply of resveratrol is possible through the consumption of red wine, red grapes , grape juice, peanuts, mulberries, and some Chinese herbs. It can also be obtained in the form of tablets, but then it is not as effective.

Its best absorption is by permeation through the mucous membrane of the oral cavity. Retaining resveratrol in the mouth for about a minute is enough to get it directly into the blood plasma.
