Found in red wine, berries, dark chocolate and other foods, it has been thought to have beneficial health effects for conditions such as cardiovascular disease. Researchers looked for the metabolites of resevertrol in the urine of over 780 people over the age of 65 from the Tuscany region of Italy. Between the group with the highest concentration of metabolites and the lowest, there was no difference in all-cause mortality, cardiovascular disease, inflammatory markers, or cancer rates.
