Studies have shown that resveratrol, a substance found in red grapes, can extend the life of fungi and animals, because it has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.

The study, this time in humans, conducted at the University of Buffalo, and published in the prestigious Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism, showed that resveratrol not only protects the health of people, but it has an impact on extending lifespan. Most likely, as the researchers say that this is because resveratrol enhances expression (activity) of a gene linked to longevity. Other studies have shown that resveratrol plays a role in the reduction of insulin resistance; (Insulin resistance is a condition that is associated with oxidative stress and which increases the risk of development of a range of conditions, from diabetes to heart disease).

Since resveratrol in grapes has, it has, and in red wine, and this was the reason that, especially in France, wine consumption is considered desirable. However, due to the impact of alcohol on the body, which is completely not be considered favorable, it is better to consume grapes, resveratrol, or in the form of a naturally-produced supplements (dietary supplements), which now number in the market, at least in the West.
