Red wine ingredient slows aging process, study shows

Sandy Kleffman: It's not exactly a fountain of youth, but a substance found in red wine, grapes and nuts can prevent many age-related problems in mice, an intriguing new study reveals.

"You're not going to be able to get the kinds of levels that these mice got by altering your diet," said Dr. Stephen Bonasera, an assistant professor in the division of geriatrics at the UCSF Memory and Aging Center.

Darn.
