Are You Immortal? Would You LIKE To Be?

Good news, folks… some of us are going to live forever!!

OK… maybe not forever, forever. Immortality is still the stuff of comic books and legends. But we could live longer than average, and look better than average while doing it! You see, according to Fox 13 News, scientists may have discovered the fountain of youth.

The secret to staying young could lie within red wine and chocolate.

Now you understand why we’re excited, right? Red wine and chocolate are two of our favorite food groups!

A new study claims a combination of the two could keep you from aging. Researchers from Exeter and Brighton universities found the necessary chemical compounds in red wine, dark chocolate, red grapes and blueberries.

Blueberries are pretty great, too. No denying it. But they’re not quite on the same level as dark, rich, luscious chocolate or dark, rich, luscious reds. (Although you could add some blueberries to the chocolate when you pair it with wine. We’d be ok with that, too.)

The researchers at Exeter found that resveratrol analogues cause “splicing factors” which turn off as we age to turn back on again. In other words, it causes old cells to divide and behave like young cells again.

“When I saw some of the cells in the culture dish rejuvenating I couldn’t believe it. These old cells were looking like young cells. It was like magic… I repeated the experiments several times and in each case the cells rejuvenated.”

A Brighton study took it one step further.

According to the study, within hours of the researchers’ treatment, the older cells started to divide, and have longer telomeres, which are caps on chromosomes that shorten as we age.

Of course, researchers caution that more studies must be done before conclusions are drawn… But we’re more than willing to begin human trials. In fact, we’ve been testing just this combination on ourselves for years!

And if you’re interested in becoming immortal, too, grab some chocolate and head on over! Let’s pop a cork and live forever!

And we’ll look good doing it!
