The Beauty of Wine

February is  heart  month and  its a great time to  look at  the “French Paradox”.  Although french meals feature butter, bacon and the eponymous french fries, the French enjoy an  enviably low rate of heart disease.  Experts believe that an anti-aging component in red wine  called resveratrol offers cardioprotection.  Research has shown that reservatrol activates a protein that  helps maintain tissue health.  Inside the body this translates to healthy heart and arteries.  On the outside this could mean better skin tone , fresher color and fewer wrinkles.

Doctors around the world have been almost frantically studying the effect of resveratrol supplements to provide the same benefits.  Imagine, a pill that could keep you healthy AND beautiful.  Now after  five  years of  study comes the news from a once promising study that resveratrol  supplements don’t deliver.  Like so many other supplement studies, the health benefits are there only  with the original food– and in this case  a daily glass of red wine.  Not  such bad news after all.
