So there’s a new study out from The University of Alberta, and it’s got some great news! If you’re someone who doesn’t much care for exercise, but you enjoy alcohol, this is going to make your year.
Drinking a glass of red wine may have the same effect on the body as an hour at the gym. The wine contains something called ‘resveratrol’ that improves physical performance, heart function, and muscle strength, just like exercise does.
Okay, it’s supposed to be for people who want to exercise but are physically incapable. Or it could work for lazy people, too.
Discussion over the health benefits of red wine has been well documented. Previous studies have revealed that those who drink a glass of red wine a day are less likely to develop dementia or cancer, that it’s good for anti-ageing, and can regulate blood sugar.
