Antioxidant Resveratrol Could Prevent Muscle Loss In Mars Mission Astronauts


A new study, (reported in the Tech Times July 19, 2019) has linked resveratrol supplementation with the preservation of muscle mass and strength in mice exposed to “zero-gravity” environments that simulate what astronauts would endure during space travel.

Resveratrol is known to have antioxidative, anticarcinogenic, and antitumor properties. 
Dietary sources include grapes, wine, peanuts, and soy. They can also be introduced into the diet through Itadori tea, which has long been used in Japan and China as a traditional herbal remedy for heart disease and strokes.
