Healthy Living On The Move - Red Wine & Dark Chocolate

A group of scientists led by Harvard geneticist David Sinclair aim to imitate the life-extending qualities created by a chemical found in dark chocolate and red wine - RESVERATROL. Resveratrol is a compound that could trigger proteins that regenerate cells. They say they have figured out how this compound functions - and its ability to fight diabetes, obesity, and even some cancers. This groundbreaking research was published in the journal Science and could pave the way for medicine that could mimic resveratrol to improve the body's defences against aging and disease. Sinclair explains: "Ultimately, these drugs would treat one disease, but unlike drugs of today, they would prevent 20 others. In effect, they would slow aging." We can't wait.
