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.
