Yay science! Research conducted by the University of Alberta has found that health benefits in resveratrol, a compound found in red wine, are equivalent to those that we get from exercise.
Before you get too excited. Read the fine print. This study is meant to benefit those who can’t physically exercise not for the average healthy person.
According to the lead researcher behind this study, Jason Dyck says this will help those unable to exercise as resveratrol was seen to improve physical performance, heart function and muscle strength. “I think resveratrol could help patient populations who want to exercise but are physically incapable,” he says.
Or maybe don’t read the fine print and grab a bottle on the way home today.
Crossfit or merlot?
