Jeanne Calment, the oldest living person known to man who died at the AGE OF 122 in 1997, credited her longevity to red port wine.
Research conducted by the University of Alberta in Canada has found that health benefits in resveratrol, a compound found in red wine, are equivalent to those that we get from exercise.
Red wine over a heavy session on the cross-trainer? Now that’s something we can definitely get onboard with. The price may be cheaper as well.
Resveratrol was seen to improve physical performance, heart function and muscle strength.
“Resveratrol could mimic exercise for young people or improve the benefits of the modest amount of exercise that older people can do.”
Discussion over the health benefits of red wine have been well documented. Studies have revealed that those who drink a glass of red wine a day are less likely to develop dementia or cancer, that it’s good for your heart, anti-ageing and can regulate blood sugar.
And now there’s research backing that fact that it boosts heart rate? This is literally the BEST THING EVER.
