Reading this while traveling? Feeling a little stressed? Business trip got you down or edgy? Researchers say red wine may help reduce your anxiety and depression!

Reservatrol (a compound found in grape skin) was found to reduce PDE4, which is a depression and anxiety-inducing enzyme. Reservatrol can also be found in berries and peanuts.

Making wine: pure Michigan grapes. Travel joy!

Scientists in New York and China recorded these findings after conducting an experiment on mice.

Before You Uncork a Bottle…

But like everything that sounds too good to be true…

“Basically if you wanted to get your resveratrol from wine,” Dr. Ginni Mansberg told Sunrise, “in the doses they were feeding them to these little mice, you’d need 13 litres a day.”

Now, I’m no scientist but that sounds like a lethal dose. Forget depression and anxiety; that much wine will eliminate a person altogether.

That being said, perhaps enjoying a glass (or two) of red wine may help you relax. Visit the hotel bar, order a split on your flight (as long as it’s more than 250 miles), enjoy a sip at an airport lounge, or stop by the grocery store’s wine aisle on your way home tonight.

You know, for science’s sake.

(If you’d rather not imbibe, reservatrol is also available as a dietary supplement.)
