Advice from Sister Dani DeVino...
A phytonutrient that has come to the attention of many (after Dr. Oz mentioned it on "Oprah"...) is resveratrol. This is a nutrient which is known for its anti-inflammatory and anti-aging abilities.
It is found in many foods, but can also be found in a supplement. Of course, when my friend and I asked for this at the health food store recently, we called it by the wrong name, and pronounced it "reverse it all"....(wishful thinking??)
If one wishes to find this nutrient in food, you can find it in peanuts (about a handful), peanut butter (2 tablespoons), purple grapes, (about 1-2 cups, and the nutrient is found in the skins), purple grape juice, cranberries, or the juice of cranberries, and purple grape juice. However, one can also find it in....RED WINE!!! Who knew? Finally, a nutrient that is found in something that Sister Dani DeVino can agree with!
