Red Wine And Resveratrol?

Hi. It’s Jesse again.

This link is really interesting.

It’s a story explaining why red wine may be so healthy. It turns out that it contains Resveratrol.

Here’s a sample of what the LA Times says:

In August 2003, when scientists first revealed the life-extending powers of trans-3,4,’5-trihydroxystilbene– also known as resveratrol — its earthly form had all the allure of an apple in the garden of Eden.

Ruby red, delicately fragrant, shapely in a rounded nest of glass, red wine can deliver as much as 1.5 milligrams of the plant compound resveratrol per four-ounce serving. At concentrations present in a person’s blood after two glasses of red wine, resveratrol has been found to suppress the formation of blood clots and boost the efficiency of immune system cells.

So, I guess I can raise my glass and say “Here’s to my health!”
