Resveratrol’s Health Benefits Mimic Those Of Extensive Endurance Exercise Training

June 22, 2012: 12:00 AM EST
High doses of the natural antioxidant compound resveratrol improved the physical performance, heart function and muscle strength in laboratory rats, similar to the way endurance exercise improves heart and muscle performance, Canadian researchers have found. Resveratrol, found in red wine, nuts and some fruits, could be used to help patients who want to exercise but are physically incapable, the researchers said. “Our findings provide evidence that the capacity for fatty acid oxidation is augmented by the addition of resveratrol to the diet during exercise training.”
