An antioxidant found in red wine and dark-skinned fruits could help improve balance and mobility-- and prevent falls among older people.

Those are the findings of a report presented at a scientific meeting in Philadelphia.

Researchers looked at the effect of the molecule called resveratrol (res-vare-uh-troll) on lab mice.

They say the results could lead to the development of natural products that would improve the lives of elderly Americans.
