Just how much you need to drink to benefit from resveratrol's potentially life-sustaining effects remains unknown, but researchers like Sinclair suggest starting with a glass a day. You'll need a big budget. Studies also indicate that resveratrol breaks down within a day after you've uncorked the bottle.

A bevy of resveratrol pills hawked on the Internet suffer from similar degradation, rendering them all but useless, according to several researchers. But you can ensure a boost by slapping together a sandwich of peanut butter and grape jelly, which both contain high levels of the chemical. Wash it down with a nice glass of pinot noir, and you'll practically be swimming in the fountain of youth.
