Everyone knows that red wine is a key component of any romantic evening, and a glass of fine wine can sooth even the greatest heartbreak. But who could have guessed that it can play a role in healing physical damage to the human heart as well?
The Journal of Cellular and Molecular Medicine published an article last week stating their findings that in their efforts to use stem cells to heal heart damage, the presence of reservatrol, one of the component ingredients of red wine, greatly increased their rate of success! They found that the stem cells were more likely to survive and the wound area experienced less stress when exposed to reservatrol in cardiac regeneration experiments on lab rats.
