The short answer is no, because you can't get wasted on it, it comes from a cow, and a slew of other reasons.
The study was built to find ways to target a specific gene, SIRT1, known for boosting metabolism and longevity. In the process, they found something in milk that behaved similarly to one of the health-boosting ingredients in red wine, resveratrol.
It's called nicotinamide riboside — a naturally occurring substance in milk — and mice that were fed a high fat diet along with this stuff burned more fat and stayed away from being obese.
Somebody should figure out how to make red wine mixed with milk not be absolutely disgusting, because then we'd be invincible!
