(Science Daily) A study … appears to offer vindication for an approach to anti-aging drugs that has been at the center of heated scientific debate in recent years. The new findings show for the first time that the metabolic benefits of the red wine ingredient known as resveratrol evaporate in mice that lack the famed longevity gene SIRT1.
"Resveratrol improves the health of mice on a high-fat diet and increases life span," said David Sinclair of Harvard Medical School.
Community: Resveratrol is found in red wine, red grapes, and peanuts. It’s also available as a food supplement.
