If You Can’t Make It To The Gym Drink Wine

I can think of about a dozen people that could have made this study up. But, it is a real study. A glass of wine is the same as hitting the gym.

According to Bustle.com, a glass of wine is the same as doing an hour of exercise at the gym. This seems hard to believe.

But, the study claims that a natural compound called resveratrol, found in certain fruits, nuts, and red wine, could actually “enhance exercise training and performance.”

But there’s more. Jason Dyck, the principal investigator for the study, says that resveratrol can also offer the same benefits working out does.

“I think resveratrol could help patient populations who want to exercise but are physically incapable. Resveratrol could mimic exercise for them or improve the benefits of the modest amount of exercise that they can do.”

The only bad news? Not-red wines don’t count (sorry, Chardonnay-lovers), and it only works with one glass — so chugging a bottle a week doesn’t equate to four to six gym sessions. But don’t let those little, itty bitty downsides take away from the bigger picture here.
