Scientists from Washington University in St. Louis studied the effects of resveratrol in mice suffering from angiogenesis. They found that resveratrol not only prevented the formation of new blood vessels but also eradicated existing buildups.
Resveratrol has been found to decrease the effects of aging and fight cancer. Experts say resveratrol should be taken in pill form to have high enough concentrations of the compound to be beneficial.
The study appears in the July issue of the "American journal of pathology."
