Italian scientists are working on a pill that replicates all the health benefits of drinking a glass of red wine. Scientists at the Pavese Pharma Biochemical Institute in Pavia, Italy, said that the pill would include a mixture of sugar, amino acids, polyphenols and other healthy ingredients in wine, but none of the alcohol. Polyphenols are antioxidants thought to protect against cancer, keep arteries clear and reduce heart disease.
