Red Wine = An Hour at the Gym? Scientists Say Yes!

Red Wine = An Hour at the Gym? Scientists Say Yes!

A glass a day keeps the gym away (or, at least at bay)

Resveratrol boosts the function of the heart, muscles, and bones just like sweating it out for an hour.

You read that correctly. Are you sitting down? Better yet, do you have a glass of wine in hand? Good, because this is something you’re going to love hearing. Scientists have discovered that enjoying a glass of red has the same benefits on the body as working out for an hour. How is that so? The faculty at the University of Alberta (Canada) found that resveratrol, which is also found in nuts and grapes, (of course it’s wine, duh!), boosts the function of the heart, muscles, and bones just like sweating it out for an hour.

I know what you’re thinking, that there has to be a catch, right? Well, for one thing, it’s only red wine rocking these benefits, and most of the health benefits in general (sorry white drinkers), also, having a glass every night does not constitute grounds for canceling your gym membership. Make of this news what you will, all we’re saying is that you can now sip guilt free after work, during dinner, or yes, instead of going to the gym every so often, just remember to go out for a nice stroll afterwards. Win(e), win(e)!

You may have seen the headlines all over social media lately: “Is Drinking Wine Better than Going to the Gym?

According to Scientists, Yes!” or more specifically, “Science says a Glass of Red Wine may be Equivalent to an Hour at the Gym.” Well, here’s the truth. And it’s gonna hurt.

The articles usually quote University of Alberta researcher, Dr. Jason Dyck. The problem is, that research is three years old, and it was not about avoiding physical activity. In 2012, Dyck’s team published a study on a compound found in red wine called resveratrol, and its ability to boost exercise performance in mice.

Dyck doesn’t know why the research has resurfaced – or how it became so distorted. But lately he’s been bombarded with interview requests from media outlets around the world.

“Unfortunately, the inaccurate information spread much wider and had more appeal than the accurate information. So that was a little disappointing for us,” Dyck tells Global News. “We thought our finding alone was of significance, but I guess it paled in comparison.”
