Red wine can provide some amazing health benefits, all thanks to resveratrol.
Resveratrol is a polyphenol that has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects. Resveratrol is found in red grapes, champagne, dark berries, peanuts and dark chocolate.
It’s better to have a little red wine throughout the week instead of a weekend binge. It’s better for your body. You’re more likely to burn off all the calories you’ve consumed.
Resveratrol capsules are available in drug stores as a food supplement. However, they haven’t been proven as a successful replacement for other sources.
Other benefits of resveratrol include improvement in eyesight and cardiovascular health, as well as a reduced risk of Alzheimer’s. It may also help physical endurance. A recent study in monkeys has shown that resveratrol increases slow-twitch muscle fibers.
