Red wine has a miracle age-defying ingredient!

Just in time for Christmas, scientists have discovered that red wine does indeed have a ‘miracle’ age-defying ingredient.

While we’ve all heard tales about age-defying properties of a glass of red a day, they’ve now been proven.

It’s all down to a health and heart-boosting ingredient called resveratrol, which can be found in the skin of red grapes (and therefore wine) that reduces stress and damage to our DNA.

Great news just before Christmas. However,  you only need to consume a small amount of red wine to reap the benefits, ie. two glasses, according to The Independent.

Does this sound like good news to you? Do you have a preference to red wine, or will this news make you switch to red?

Which wine do you prefer?

640 people have already voted, what's your opinion? Red White

Will you make the switch?

We'd love to hear your comments

Used to drink rougemont red wine, which doesn't seem to be in favour with wine buffs, but I loved it and now can't get it anywhere. It was lovely. No vinegar taste, just soft and fruity. Wish I could get it again

I don't really drink white at all, unless it's sparkly for a celebration!

I think I am like everyone else started with sweet white wine and steadily got drier and drier then changed to red, I like Blossom hill and Australian red wine also like South African wine

Prefer White but think its true that Red is better for you...in moderation. Interesting that so many "experts" talk about the Mediterraneans diet of salads, olive oil, fish and red wine is good for people and I read recently the oldest populations in Europe are in places like Crete where they drink red wine a lot
