A Glass of Wine is Equivalent to a Heavy Session on a Cross Trainer

Thoughts for #sciencefriday.

A glass of red wine is the equivalent to an hour at the gym, says new study |

 Drinking red wine could help burn fat, says new study
Research conducted by the University of Alberta in Canada has found that health benefits in resveratrol, a compound found in red wine, are equivalent to those that we get from exercise.
Red wine over a heavy session on the cross-trainer? Now that’s something we can definitely get onboard with.
According to lead researcher, Jason Dyck, these findings will help those unable to exercise as resveratrol was seen to improve physical performance, heart function and muscle strength.
“I think resveratrol could help patient populations who want to exercise but are physically incapable,” he says.
