Rosé may be the official-unofficial choice for #SundayFunday, but there’s one reason to substitute a glass of red occasionally: It’s called resveratrol. Resveratrol is a naturally occurring plant compound found in red wine (white and rosé wines have it too, just lower amounts), and there’s buzz about its health benefits. Specifically, it’s touted as a heart healthy, anti-inflammatory metabolism-booster—in fact, some say resveratrol in wine is why the French stay healthy while enjoying so much butter and fat! Good news for vino drinkers (and Francophiles)! If you don’t drink alcohol (or you stay away from wine specifically), you’re still in luck—resveratrol isn’t just in wine. It’s found in lots of plants, including grapes, peanuts, apples, raspberries, blueberries, plums, and soy, as well as in Japanese knotweed, a traditional herbal remedy for heart disease and strokes (check it out in the WanaLibrary!). Despite the promise of resveratrol, it’s not quite the miracle cure you might expect from all the over-the-top hype. Plus, it’s a challenge to know how much resveratrol your body needs in order to reap the potential benefits. Researchers haven’t yet pinpointed an effective dosage, but they’re working to find ways to increase its bioavailability.
