According to researchers of the University of Alberta in Canada the resveratrol, a compound found in red wine has health benefits similar to those we get from exercise.


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.

“I think resveratrol could help patient populations who want to exercise but are physically incapable,” he says.
“Resveratrol could mimic exercise for them or improve the benefits of the modest amount of exercise that they can do.” (
