We know red wine is good for you, to an extent, but can it be as effective as exercise?
One study says so. It says drinking red wine is produces results as if you worked out for an hour.
Red wine is made by fermenting dark-colored, whole grapes. it is high in antioxidants, and drinking moderate amounts has been shown to be good for health.
It's the ingredient in the red wine, resveratrol, found in the skin of grapes, which is the healthy factor.
It's also found in peanut butter, blueberries, raspberries and dark chocolate in another study.
Yale neuro scientist Gordon Shepherd says the flavor of wine actually engages our brain more than any other human behavior.
Shepherd’s new book, “Neuroenology: How The Brain Creates The Taste of Wine,” expands on the discovery that the brain actually creates the taste of wine the book takes you thru the process of from the movements of wine through your mouth, to the effect of its appearance and smell.
