New Delhi: Consuming red wine and grapes can help to reduce inflammatory diseases such as chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases (COPD) and middle ear infection (otitis media) and asthma, as per a recent study.

The findings, published in the journal Scientific Reports, identify that resveratrol, a compound found naturally in some plant foods such as grapes, can alleviate inflammation in airway disease and control inflammation induced by a bacterial pathogen.

The results suggested this compound could offer health benefits and be used to develop new, effective anti-inflammatory therapeutic agents.

"We showed that an important component in red wine and also grapes called resveratrol can suppress inflammation," said Jian-Dong Li, researcher at the Georgia State University.
