University of Alberta: Drinking a Glass of Red Wine Equals 1 Hour at Gym


PORTLAND, Ore. — The Huffington Post on Friday reported on a new study out of The University of Alberta that shows that drinking a glass of red wine may have the same affect on the body as an hour at the gym.


A component in the wine, resveratrol, was seen to improve physical performance, heart function and muscle strength similar to the affect exercise has on the body.

Principal investigator Jason Dyck says “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,”

“It is very satisfying to progress from basic research in a lab to testing in people, in a short period of time,” Dyck said.
