It's a surprise finding when it comes to the health benefits of red wine.

Researchers in Denmark say the antioxidant found in red wine actually counteracts the benefits of exercise in older men. 

The study found that resveratrol negated the effects of exercise on blood pressure and cholesterol.

Researchers were surprised because earlier studies in animals found resveratrol improved the cardiovascular benefits of exercise.
