As strange as it sounds, a new research study published in the FASEB Journal (http://www.fasebj.org), suggests that the "healthy" ingredient in red wine, resveratrol, may prevent the negative effects that spaceflight and sedentary lifestyles have on people. The report describes experiments in rats that simulated the weightlessness of spaceflight, during which the group fed resveratrol did not develop insulin resistance or a loss of bone mineral density, as did those who were not fed resveratrol.
This study also suggests that resveratrol may be able to prevent the deleterious consequences of sedentary behaviors in humans.

Try this stuff:
How do you simulate weightlessness?
The food that’s supposed to be so good for you, is so good.
to a lesser extent
tea (I’ve cut this out due to kidney stones)
That does it. I’m going on a chocolate and red wine diet starting tonight.
PINGing all you space cadets!
Only dark chocolate :(
Never heard of it. Does it work well?
“I’ll drink to that...but I’ll drink to anything!”
I drink a glass of red wine every night. It’s good for the blood, good for the heart.
I don’t drink it to excess, just one per night (small glass).
I never doubt it for a moment.
