Actually 1300 Glasses Of Red Wine = 1 Hour In The Gym

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]The internet has literally been flooded with articles recently that I am sure you have seen that state a glass of red wine has the same benefits as 30 mins/one hour at the gym. Using this as a scientific fact I should be ripped beyond belief but this could not be further from the truth.


So where did this information come from? It turns out this info was based on a study published in the Journal of Psychology entitled “Improvements in skeletal muscle strength and cardiac function induced by resveratrol during exercise training contribute to enhanced exercise performance in rats.”

The funny thing is that in no way shape or form do the authors EVER state that wine can replace exercise – what they do say however is ““Combining resveratrol supplementation with exercise training augments the beneficial effects of exercise alone.”.

Also I am not sure if you noticed but the study was based on rats, yes rats, not humans. Maybe this explains how Leonardo, Donatello, Michelangelo and Raphael came to be, but it is a bit of a leap to assume the same results would be seen in humans.

A recent study by showed that in actual fact it would take around 1300 glasses of red wine in order to get the same amount of resveratrol in the red wine that the rats get.
