Love a good glass of vino but hate hitting the gym to work it off? This news will make your day.
Research conducted by the University of Alberta in Canada has found that health benefits in resveratrol, a compound found in red wine, are similar to those we get from exercise.
Red wine over a heavy session on the cross-trainer? Now that’s something we can definitely get onboard with.
According to lead researcher, Jason Dyck, these findings will particularly help those who are unable to exercise. Resveratrol was seen to improve physical performance, heart function and muscle strength in the same way as they’re improved after a gym session.
