Old and Young benefit from the antioxidant properties of Red Wine
2 myths have been put into touch recently - chocolate gives you spots and drinking impairs your vision. We all rejoiced when we heard that red wine was good for the old ticker as it contains the antioxidant resveratrol - any old excuse! But now researchers have linked the antioxidant with beneficial properties for both acne and vision. Good news for acne suffers then as researchers at the University of California LA found that resveratrol inhibited the production of acne and the best treatment was when it was combined with benzoyl peroxide. So eating chocolate isn't so bad for your skin after all. Meanwhile researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St Louis found that it can stop the growth of harmful blood vessels and protect the vessels in the eye from being damaged from the effects of anti-aging. Hoorah for red wine we say.
