How Red Wine Could Slow Down Aging

Another study is touting the health benefits of red wine. Researchers from Virginia Tech’s Carilion Research Institute say a compound in red wine can help slow aging when taken in huge amounts. The compound is called resveratrol, and is found in the skin of red grapes, giving the fruit its color. Resveratrol has previously been shown to help insects live longer, by mimicking the effects of calorie restriction. The hope is that at some point down the line, after more research, a pill could be developed with the stuff that slows down aging. (Daily Mail
