Reservatrol is the substance in red wine that has been linked to vino’s heart health benefits. Now a new study aims to take this little known compound to rock star status.
How? Well the study concluded it can help with weight loss. This statement has likely sealed reservatrol’s fate:
“Without changing their diet or exercise habits, the mens’ metabolic function improved…..they were using and storing calories more like athletes in training than obese couch potatoes”
You had me at “without changing their diets or exercise habits”. The allure of a no effort weight loss solution continues to be remarkable. A simple pill to make me lose weight is the holy grail.
Expect an onslaught of “miracle diet pills” boosting your metabolic rate. Expect “clinically proven” to be touted. Even though most don’t really know what that means. It sounds scientific.
Consider yourself warned. The magic weight loss pill remains a myth, sadly. Feel free to continue to enjoy red wine to your heart’s content. Just don’t expect the pounds to melt away.
