Red wine may have health benefits
May 2, 2012 (CHICAGO) (WLS) -- Red wine has long been touted for its health benefits. Now, there's a new insight into how it could help people live longer by slowing down the aging process.
A study in the journal 'Cell Metabolism,' claims to have figured out how the anti-aging ingredient in red wine, resveratrol, functions in the body.
Scientists say resveratrol enhances the activity of energy-generating power plants in cells through a special gene also linked to longevity. Understanding how resveratrol works could help speed the development of other anti-aging drugs.
