Red wine helps to get rid of mental problemsPictolic
Scientists from the University of Buffalo, USA, has made a very important discovery. They determined that red wine helps to get rid of some problems with the psyche. The beneficial effects of wine on mental health has been proven during long-term experiments with laboratory animals, which drove into depression, and then cured.
It turns out that red wine helps get rid of depression and anxiety. It does not mean the use of "shock" dose of alcohol that causes that feeling of inexplicable joy of being, but mean different application. The role of medicinal component in the fault acts resveratrol is a natural antioxidant found in grape skins.
To identify the positive effect of resveratrol on the psyche helped laboratory mice and rats. Rodents especially upset and forced to fall into depression, and then... No, they are not splashed drinkers of wine, and added a dedicated from grapes resveratrol in food.
Substance immediately began to act, or rather, to break down accumulated in the medulla of the PDE4 enzyme, causing a depressed state. Very soon rodents mental state has improved and the slightest trace of experienced adversity in their bodies left.
Scientists believe that this is an important discovery, but, alas, can't find a practical application. The fact that resveratrol to exit from depression needs a lot, but in wine it contains negligible amount. It is estimated that for a person weighing 70 kg, the effective dose of this substance is 700 mg. It is so much biologically active component contains 350 glasses of red wine.Such a quantity of wine people make in one sitting, can not, and if I could, it is clearly not gone in his favor. The alcohol content in the blood this case significantly exceeds the permissible dose and suffering from anxiety, the patient drunk to death. Therefore, researchers from Buffalo argue that the future of their discovery for pharmacists, who must learn to separate the cure for the poison and create pills with resveratrol.
Today, for the treatment of depression and used drugs with a different mechanism of action. They aim to change the functions of serotonin and norepinephrine in the brain. New drugs on the basis of grapes will help to block themselves harmful enzymes that make the treatment of patients at least three times more efficient.
Wine is a very interesting product, which is known since ancient times. Despite this, humanity opens new properties of this alcoholic beverage.
