Hate To Work Out But Love To Drink Wine?

If you hate jogging in the morning or work out in gym, but love to drink glass of wine, this is a good vibes for you.

According to study conducted by University of Alberta in Canada, a natural compound found in red wine, nuts, and some fruits — resveratrol — can improve physical performance, the same benefits we will get from exercise.


Jason Dyck, a lead researcher who works in the Faculty of Medicine & Dentistry as a researcher in the department of Pediatrics and the department of Pharmacology, and his team found out that the higher doses of natural compound, resveratrol, improved heart function, muscle strength, and physical performances.
"We were excited when we saw that resveratrol showed results similar to what you would see from extensive endurance exercise training.We immediately saw the potential for this and thought that we identified 'improved exercise performance in a pill.' "
His team's findings were published in the peer-reviewed Journal of Physiology in late May.

According to him, this compound could help patient who wants to exercise yet physically incapable.

More studies say that red wine has been documented to have health benefits to humans. Studies also revealed that someone drink a glass of red wine a day are less likely to developer dementia or cancer — anti-aging, good for the heart, and regulate blood sugar.

"I think resveratrol could help patient populations who want to exercise but are physically incapable. Resveratrol could mimic exercise for them or improve the benefits of the modest amount of exercise that they can do," says Dyck. "It is very satisfying to progress from basic research in a lab to testing in people, in a short period of time.".
The research was funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research.
