Cheers! A Glass of Red Wine a Day

Wine is not only heart healthy, it can also boost immunity, help with weight loss, reduce forgetfulness, and help prevent a possible life threatening disease.

Wine is not only heart healthy, it can also boost immunity, help with weight loss, reduce forgetfulness, and help prevent a possible life threatening disease.

Because red wine is created with grape skin during the fermentation process, red wine is much richer in antioxidants than white wine. These antioxidants are the reason for red wine’s health benefits.

Antioxidants neutralize free radicals in your body that cause types of cancer, stroke, dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, heart diseases, and immune dysfunction.

Pour yourself a glass while you learn about the specifics about wine’s health benefits when drinking in moderation:

Heart Attack and Stroke

Wine, known for its relaxing qualities, relaxes the blood vessels. By inhibiting the oxidation of unhealthy cholesterol, the antioxidants present in both wine and grape juice in combination with the relaxed blood vessels can reduce the risk of stroke and heart attack.

Cancer

Resveratrol is an antioxidant present in wine that is being studied as a treatment for cancer patients. Resveratrol has been proven to make chemotherapy and radiation more effective because when combined with radiation, resveratrol can aid in killing the cancerous cells.

Pancreatic cancer usually does not respond well to chemotherapy, and resveratrol seems like it reduces pancreatic cancer’s resistance.

Memory

Because wine can help prevent clots and reduce blood vessel inflammation, drinking wine can help stimulate your cognitive function. Studies have shown that women over the age of 70 who drank a glass of wine a couple of times a week scored much higher than those who drank less or not at all.

The antioxidants in wine help the muscle function of your brain which reduces the risk of degenerative brain diseases such as dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.

Immunity

Wine antioxidants can keep your body’s cells healthy. Healthy cells lead to looking and feeling younger while preventing your risk of infection of ulcers, stomach cancers, gastritis, and other bacteria like salmonella.

Weight

Because wine reduces cholesterol and high blood pressure, your weight is already healthier. Furthermore, studies have shown that digesting a glass of wine burns more calories because in order to metabolize wine your body needs to burn energy.

Additionally, many people who have a drink with their meal eat significantly less. Researchers are unsure of the reason, but assume that most people are more likely to slow down to savor their food and drink.

Of course, when it comes to alcohol, drinking in moderation is key, otherwise the harm excessive alcohol can produce in your body can outweigh the health benefits. Moreover, a poor diet and lack of exercise can also outweigh the benefits of a glass of red wine.

But, drinking red wine in moderation can result in a healthier body and a sharper mind, so raise a glass to red wine and enjoy its twofold benefits of health and taste.
