WANT TO LIVE TO 100? DRINK RED WINE! (in moderation)

Posted by: Laurence Harmon on 6/26/2008

According to a recent study, a low dose of dietary resveratrol (the ingredient found in red wine) partially mimics caloric restriction and retards aging parameters in mice.

Although not yet proven in humans, lab rodents in an extreme caloric restricted diet have had extended life spans by up to 30 percent.

A recent study conducted at Harvard University in the U.S.A. again confirms the benefits of drinking moderate amounts of red wine. The study, using laboratory rats, confirmed earlier studies at other universities that red wine contains ingredients that reduce levels of cholesterol in the blood stream, reduces risks of some forms of cancer, and even helps prevent the onset of Alzheimer’s disease.

Bottom line:  Red wine may be a potent antidote to Alzheimer's!
