Washington: Previous scientific research on resveratrol, a constituent of red wine and other vegetable products, has revealed that in high doses, it may increase longevity of life and reduce metabolic diseases of aging.But, a new study in mice has argued that crediting only resveratrol for a specific effect on health could be misleading.More than two decades ago, particularly through publicity related to the so-called “French Paradox,” the public became aware of the potential reduction in the risk of coronary heart disease from the moderate consumption of red wine, and the media focused on a single constituent in red wine, resveratrol, as being the “key” factor.Even though it is known that resveratrol is only one of hundreds of phenolic compounds in wine, many of which have been shown to have beneficial effects on vascular function, and that alcohol itself (present in wine, beer or spirits) also provides considerable protection against heart disease.Still, there has remained considerable attention paid to resveratrol, and extensive scientific research on resveratrol and related substances have shown that, in high doses, they may increase longevity of life and reduce metabolic diseases of aging.
