New Wine In Old Bottles

I read the title of this study“Anti-inflammatory activity of natural stilbenoids”. 

Oooh, neat. Natural Stilbenoids!! A new term!!  I don’t know what a stilbenoid even is, much less a “natural” one.

Does that mean there are UNnatural stilbenoids? SUPERnatural stilbenoids?

And, these natural guys are apparently anti-inflammatory, which means that they could be good for a billion reasons inside your body. So what are they?


It’s a little ordinary actually. Stilbenoids are just the class of molecules found in wine, berries, etc. So when you hear people go on about them in the news, you might want to have a nice glass of wine, some blackberries, and read something else.
