Lose weight correctly – Red wine compensates for the lack of physical activity
Consumption of red wine in small amounts is useful for the cardiovascular system is a well known fact. However, this amazing properties of the drink are not limited. A group of American scientists have found that resveratrol – found in red wine polyphenol – helps to prevent the harmful effects of a sedentary lifestyle and even stay in weightlesnes.
To preserve muscle and bone mas, as well as to maintain all physiological functions of the human body need exercise. However, it happens that people have for a long time to go without active physical effort – for example, when illnes, injury, old age. Especially strongly from no load affects astronauts in weightlesnes muscles do not have to strain even enough to resist the force of gravity.
The authors of the study put lab rats in conditions that mimic nevesomost. Then, having divided the experimental animals into two groups (test and control), daily feed test group a dietary Supplement containing resveratrol. After a while the rats of the control group decreased body weight and muscular strength, developed insulin resistance. decreased bone density (i.e., increased risk of fractures). The group taking resveratrol, similar effects are not found.
Scientists believe that resveratrol can help to prevent the harmful effects of immobility not only to researchers of space, but ordinary people who lead a sedentary lifestyle. In the course of additional studies have managed to identify some of the mechanisms of action of this substance. While resveratrol is not necesary to take tablets: if you are not an astronaut, you may well from time to time to drink a glas of red wine.
However, the researchers caution that the red wine in any case should not be viewed as a complete replacement of fitnes. First of all, it relates to losing weight. whose task is not only to preserve and build muscle with the aim of improving energy metabolism. Therefore, to evade practice will not work. Moreover, it should be borne in mind that any wine, even dry, contains not les than 75 calories per 100 g.
