Wine May Help Aching Muscles
If your muscles are aching, try saying “Cheers!”
According to research published in the journal Frontiers in Physiology, the muscles of monkeys given the antioxidant resveratrol are more resistant to fatigue. Resveratrol is found in many berries as well as in grapes, meaning it’s present in red wines.
Georgetown associate professor J.P. Hyatt led the research, and says that ingesting resveratrol could allow people to “sustain longer periods of activity and could contribute to improved physical activity, mobility, or stability, especially in elderly individuals.”
Still, better wait until after the workout to begin sipping the red wine.
