Could Red Wine Reverse The Aging Process?

Filed under: AgingAlcoholScience!

red-wine-anti-aging-stuf.jpg

Red wine has already been linked to heart health and protection against certain cancers — but can it reverse the aging process?

Red wine's possible anti-aging properties have been examined for years but now a recent study has found a specific aging-related gene that may be activated by red wine.

The researchers used mice and looked at the effects of resveratrol, the interesting anti-aging compound in red wine.

The study's co-author said resveratrol:

"[…] revs up the battery packs of the cells — the mitochondria — and if we delete [the anti-aging gene] in mice, resveratrol doesn’t do that anymore.

The decline in batteries is a major factor that makes us susceptible to diseases. The cells have more energy and live longer."

What all that means is they've pinpointed a gene that deals with aging that resveratrol activates.

What that activation does is make the body appear as if it's been on a restricted diet.

That means that if scientists can figure out how to directly affect this gene, they may be able to give you a pill that makes it seem as if you've been dieting and exercising without actually doing any work.

Which sounds like kinda a bad idea, but if that's what it takes to stay forever young, we guess it'll have to do.

Kate Walsh Shape

Did Playboy and SHAPE mix up their covers this month? Ha!

Kate Walsh is covering the women's health magazine's March issue in the nude and at 44-years-old, she looks incredible! In a candid interview, she spoke about issues including plastic surgery, smoking, dieting and, oh yeah, why she decided to get nakie in front of the entire world! When asked about her decision to disrobe for the camera, she replied:

"I was terrified, but I really wanted to do a naked cover — especially with SHAPE, because the magazine is about loving yourself inside and out. Right now, I feel really healthy, confident, and sexy. I'n enjoying my 40s and wanted to share that. Is it a mid life crisis? I do drive a porsche, so maybe it is!"

If you're wondering what her diet secret for maintaining that ideal body is, it's not a fad diet like Atkins. Yeah, she's tried a bunch of those, but like most people who do the same, they didn't work out too well. After attempting to undergo a weeklong juice cleanse for a total of 7 hours, she adopted a smarter approach and relies on portion control, explaining:
