Which red wines have resveratrol polyphenols?!

Question: Which red wines have resveratrol polyphenols!?
I was watching Oprah the other day and Dr!. Oz was talking about the "Blue Zones" which are places around the world where people live the longest due to their lifestyles!. One thing he spoke about was how some wines contain a certain antioxidant called resveratrol, however he didn't specify which ones!. Anybody happen to know anything about this!? Thanks in advance for all answers!. :)Www@FoodAQ@Com

In short, red wines have it!. The skins of dark red/purple-blue/near black grapes contain resveratrol!. That the French drink prodigious amounts of red wine is considered a factor in why they have such low rates of cardiac deaths (the French Paradox) despite their butter/cream laden diet!.

Research this through the Mayo Clinic, they have some great articles on resveratrol and its potential health benefits!. By the way, resveratrol and polyphenols you mention can also be found in regular "red" grape juice, without the alcohol!. Some claim the same health benefits!.

Cautionary note - some have suggested that the tannins in red wine contribute to its reputed health benefits!. No!. Tannins act as preservative that allows red wine to age or keep from spoiling, not as a perservative for humans!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
