Red Wine May Have The Same Benefit As Exercise

If you listen to Leslie and I in the morning, you undoubtedly know that my wife and I are really into wine. We love mostly red wines like Pinot Noir, Zinfandel and red blends.

I recently had to give up most of the exercise routines I have been working through the last couple of years because of some arthritis issues, which really bothers me because I was making some really good progress and now I’m wondering what I can do to try and stay fit.

Well, turns out according to a new study, all I really have to do is knock down a glass of red wine, which is the best possible news I could have received. According to the study, red wine contains a natural phenol called Resveratrol which can give you the same benefit as exercise in terms of maintaining muscle mass and bone strength…..MORE great News!!

However, it is important to point out that all of the tests on resveratrol have been conducted on rodents and scientists are not sure if resveratrol has the same effect on humans. One thing they do know is that humans would have to consume a lot more than one glass to reap the benefits, a lot more, but if you love wine,  there are worse things in life, right?

If they need any human volunteers….I am available immediately….who’s with me????
