Try a Resver­a­trol Sup­ple­ment More than 1,000 years ago, an ayurvedic rem­edy de­scribed as a “weak wine” was used as a heart tonic in In­dia. Ac­cord­ing to sci­en­tists at the Univer­sity of Illi­nois, resver­a­trol made up a sig­nif­cant por­tion of that brew. In 2003, in­ter­est in resver­a­trol sky­rock­eted af­ter Har­vard re­searchers found that it ex­tends the life of yeast cells. In later stud­ies, resver­a­trol in­creased the life­span of worms, fruit flies, fsh, and mice. All told, more than 4,500 pub­lished stud­ies have looked at resver­a­trol in the past few decades.

Re­searchers at the Na­tional In­sti­tutes of Health es­ti­mate that you would have to drink 667 bot­tles of wine to get 1,000 mg of resver­a­trol, a ther­a­peu­tic dose.
