Wine save you from excess weight

 Large doses of resveratrol - the organic matter contained in red wine, in the skin of grapes and other berries and nuts - increase endurance of the muscles of mice and rodents rescued from obesity.

This was reported by French scientists from the Institute of Genetics, Molecular and Cellular Biology.

During the experiment, the researchers put mice on a diet high in fat. The first half of the rodents received daily to 400 milligrams of resveratrol per kilogram of body weight (person to receive the equivalent dose of resveratrol, you need to drink 100 glasses of red wine per day), and the other half - the control group - was left alone with fats.

Three weeks later, mice treated with resveratrol, weighed only 20% more than their conventional counterparts. At the same time, rodents on fatty diet, without grape remaining components gained weight by 60% more than normal mice.

Then in the "fitness tests" revealed that resveratrol improves endurance of mice: on a treadmill they lasted twice as long as usual - and it seems without any harmful side effects.
