A Glass Of Red Wine Is The Equivalent To An Hour At The Gym, Says New Study

    Nerd alert: The study that they reference was a male rat (did not study any females) population that actually didn’t look at drinking of red wine, only one compound found in red wine. Additionally most of the significant results (extrapolation of the findings that wine is good for you) came from the rats that also exercised (60 mins a day); this would suggest that it is most beneficial is to exercise and drink red wine.

    In this article (http://www.mdpi.com/1420-3049/19/9/14919/htm) the same authors cite some clinical trials where they further suggest that with HIIT the benefits may not be the same as moderate exercise (again clinical trials only in males and there are many limitations to these studies) “The combination of resveratrol and high-intensity aerobic training may deplete these stores in the aged and consequently sufficient levels of substrates are not available to observe any potential additive effects of resveratrol on exercise capacity”.

    Regardless, studies are limited. There are plenty of other studies to cite that suggest red wine is beneficial, not based on this one compound/mechanism. I HIGHLY doubt the health benefits could replace an hour at the gym, as the uninformed news article states. However, an hour at the gym + a glass of lovely vino = happiness all around. Any of my other science CrossFit geeks down to study this?
