With 33 to 38 percent of increase in lifespan, the bees also showed an increased inclination towards judicious decisions as to what food they are having. The compound, resveratrol, in itself is quite miraculous as it has anti aging properties. It also fights the effects of the 'free radicals' but the same compound is not known to increase longevity of bees living under stressful conditions. This might be because bees love sweets that in return causes detrimental effects. However, after being administered with the compound, it was noticed that the bees were not interested in sweets unless the sugar was concentrated.
Thus the bees showed that after being administered with the compound the bees were less inclined to eat than bees who were not given the compound. Scientists say it is possible that resveratrol may be working by some mechanism that is related to caloric restriction which is a dietary regimen long known to extend lifespan in diverse organisms. Since red wine has the compound it means longer life for humans. After this people in India will not run away from the idea of having a glass of red wine with their dinner.
