Animal Research Minute – Did you know scientists have uncovered some good news for red wine drinkers?
Well, according to CBS News, scientists have discovered, with the help of mice, how red wine’s anti-aging properties work. It seems an ingredient in red wine, called resveratrol, targets a specific gene that is linked to longevity. Mice without this gene do not reap the benefits of the anti-aging resveratrol. While more research is needed, this study with mice reveals that moderate amounts of resveratrol could help us live longer and healthier lives.
