Body Beautiful #6--Red Wine

I am always interested in how to stay looking young and read everything I can get my hands on about anti-aging. AOL had a good article today, which had a few things I had never heard before. I knew of course that red wine is good for you; it has resveratrol in it, which has been called the ultimate anti-aging nutrient. What a recommendation! Drink up! But one thing it said that I paid attention to is that women who drink red wine should also take folic acid, as even one drink a day can increase your risk for breast cancer if you are folic deficient. Wow--I did not know that. Folic acid also is good for heart and circulation health, so I am going to start popping that little pill again.
