Red Wine Pill
Scientists are now trying to put resveratrol, the ingredient in red wine that’s supposed to be beneficial in protecting us from such maladies as Alzheimer’s, diabetes and heart disease, into pill format. Although present in red wine, it’s in such small amounts, one would theoretically have to drink mega amounts to benefit and suffer the damage of excessive alcohol in turn. The liver breaks down purified resveratrol very quickly, so researchers in Australia have been experimenting blending it with wine’s other components that appear to make it more effective. If successful this would be a great accomplishment. I wonder if the pill will come in different varietals!
