Researchers from the U.S. National Institute on Aging, Harvard University, as well as other researchers have found that a compound in wine known as resveratrol actually helps prevent aging.

They conducted a study on mice, which found that resveratrol helps increase longevity in people, improved liver function, muscle function, and more.

The compound is also found in grapes and nuts.

For the study, they had one group of mice eat a high-calorie diet without the compound, and another group have a high caloroie diet with the compound from red wine.

They found that the mice who consumers resveratrol on a daily basis had better bones overall compared to mice who did not.

These same mice consuming resveratrol also had fewer cases of cataracts, better balance, coordination, and improved liver, muscle function.

The study was published on Thursday in the journal Cell Metabolism..
