Consuming red wine ingredient, resveratrol, equivalent to gym workout!
I don’t know about you, but I absolutely LOVE hearing about studies which encourage us to consume the things we enjoy! And drinking red wine is no exception.
A Canadian study has discovered that resveratrol, a compound found in red wine, provides similar benefits when consumed to those we get from exercising, namely improvements in:
- muscle strength;
- physical performance, and
- heart function
These findings could help people who are unable to workout, or improve the benefits of people who only exercise a little.
Alternative sources of resveratrol include peanut butter, red grapes, dark chocolate and blueberries.
