Resveratrol, which has been linked to a number of health benefits, is a compound found in the skin and seeds of grapes and berries.

The new study, published in the journal Neuropharmacology, resveratrol was found to display neuroprotective effects against the stress hormone corticosterone by inhibiting the expression of an enzyme called phosphodiesterase 4 (PDE4).
