Research and reports on the anti-aging effects of resveratrol have been quite frequently translated in recent times by many media sources. This so-called "fountain of youth" compound found in red wines and other natural plants and herbs has been hyped up to be something that (at least in mice), rejuvenates mitochondria and produces the same cell-level changes as longevity-enhancing calorically restricted diets. However, these tests also concluded that in order to recieve the amount of resveratrol used in these positive studies, one would have to consume around 750 bottles of red wine a day!
A liter of wine contains about three milligrams of resveratrol; the mid-range mouse dose in a recent study was 30 milligrams per kilogram of body weight.
Scale that up to a 165-pound human, and you've got a daily dose of 2.25 grams. If you want to get this from wine, tell your friends and family first: you'll need to drink 750 bottles. - Wired Science
So before you go out to your local wine shop and pick up a bottle of red wine for it's anti-aging benefits, remember to drink it with a group of your most amusing friends. The release of endorphins from a good buzz and laugh may just give you a better chance of rejuvenating yourself.
