A recent study shows that drinking red wine– or taking resveratrol supplements – isn’t an ingredient for a longer life after all.
U.S. researchers may have found a flaw with the “French Paradox,” or the notion that people who drink red wine can somehow avoid the pitfalls of a high-fat diet.
A study published Monday found that resveratrol – one of the highly touted antioxidants in red wine – did not help people live longer.
Nor did it help people avoid cancer or heart disease, according to the research in JAMA Internal Medicine, a journal of the American Medical Association.
“This study suggests that dietary resveratrol from Western diets in community-dwelling older adults does not have a substantial influence on inflammation, cardiovascular disease, cancer, or longevity,” said the research, led by Richard Semba of the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.
