Down-regulation of adhesion molecules and other inflammatory biomarkers after moderate wine consumption in healthy women: a randomized trial
We’ve all heard that red wine is good for you in moderation, but occasionally we get reminders of just how good. Resveratrol is the compound present in red wine and peanuts that has been targeted as the main component.
There has been much research lately on resveratrol’s effects on the Sirtuin family of genes. This family of genes plays a very important role in how the body benefits from calorie restriction without nutrient restriction. It is very likely that resveratrol’s effects on these genes can mimic calorie restriction, providing a very broad range of healthy benefits.
