Have any of you heard of this?
You can buy it in pills/capsules now.
The Muscadine variety of grapes has the greatest amount of it,
though it is in all grapes I think, and red wines.

I just wondered if it may have something to do with alchemy and why
the true spirit of wine is such a wonderful medicine.
I found some at Walgreens in their clearance bins marked down from $20 to $5,
so I thought I'd give it a try. I know some people who've been taking it and really like it.

This all seems very experimental and eighty years to finalise the results on humans puts me out of the running - possibly :)

The interaction with a persons diet and lifestyle needs to be taken into account. One man's elixir may be another man's poison.

I hope that was not too negative...I keep an open mind.
