Red wine could be the key to the French paradox image

Red wine could be the secret of the ‘French paradox’. Although the typical French diet can be high in fats and sugars, the country has a lower rate of heart disease—and it could be because the wine’s resveratrol counters the bad effects of sugar.

Not that it’s an excuse to eat a bad diet and compensate with a glass of red wine each time, say researchers. Resveratrol is also found in blueberries, raspberries, mulberries and grape skin, so these could be added to the diet instead.

Researchers at Georgetown University have tested the effects of resveratrol on a group of rhesus monkeys, half of whom were fed a healthy diet and the rest ate a diet high in sugars and fats. Half of those on the high fat/sugar diet were also given a resveratrol supplement.

In previous studies, the research team found that resveratrol helped mice live longer and slowed the start of diabetes. It was even as beneficial as aerobic exercise.
