Forget the Gym! Drink Red Wine Instead?

“Drinking Red Wine Has Health Benefits!”

No one is going to argue about the substantial, well-documemted benefits of the phytochemical, resveratrol.

It’s contained in red wine and peanuts.

As you can discover further in the short article here,  University of Alberta researches have recently reported that their studies seem to indicate that drinking red wine could be a partial substitute for crucial, healthy activity.

But one glass of red wine equalling an hour of cardiovascular exercise at a gym, I doubt very much. Regrettably,  the latter is the title of the many posts now going the rounds on the Web.

Sometimes the writers of article headlines go overboard in communication accuracy,  eh?

What the lead researcher is quoted as actually saying is:

“I think resveratrol could help patient populations who want to exercise but are physically incapable. Resveratrol could mimic exercise for them or improve the benefits of the modest amount of exercise that they can do.”

Nonetheless, I now will be drinking my one glass of red wine with my dinner, especially on the days I missed my two mile in under 1/2 hr. walk, wearing an even bigger smile than I have before I read this!

Blessings all!
