Sounds too good to be true huh! 

Because the inclination is to believe the more you drink the more unstable you become and the more likely to fall.

Sounds too good to be true huh! 

Because the inclination is to believe the more you drink the more unstable you become and the more likely to fall.

For eight weeks, scientists at Duquesne University, led by Assistant Professor of Pharmacology Jane E. Cavanaugh, Ph.D., fed old and young mice a diet rich in resveratrol, the antioxidant compound found in red wine, dark-skinned fruit, nuts and blueberries. Over that time, they observed how many missteps the mice made when traversing a balance beam made of steel mesh.

At the start of the study, the elderly mice struggled with missteps and frequently fell off the beam, while the younger mice did not. As the study went on, though, the old mice grew steadier on their feet.

“[Resveratrol] could actually decrease some of the motor deficiencies that are seen in our aging population,” Cavanaugh said, which in turn could increase a senior’s quality of life and decrease the risk of hospitalization from a fall.

 
 Sounds like you need a great deal of wine to make this work. I suggest you get started now. Oh but consult with your doctor first.
 
Happy New Year everyone.
