07 Oct What Are The Health Benefits Of Wine?
Have you ever wondered, “What are the health benefits of wine, red or white?” Well, we’d like to share why you should consider drinking a glass or two of wine a day all in the name of improved health! So what is it exactly that makes red wine such a healthy choice? Wine is full of heart healthy compounds, including tannins, polyphenols and the magic ingredient, resveratrol, all of which contribute to improved health. Let’s look at some recent studies about moderate wine consumption and how the health benefits of wine may improve your health:
Tip #1: Wine can reduce a person’s risk of heart attack, stroke and Type 2 Diabetes by 30% or more.
Tip #2: Studies have also shown that red wine can raise your HDL or good cholesterol, while lowering your LDL or bad cholesterol, by 20%.
Tip #3: Wine drinkers experience a slower decline in brain function over time, while also having as much as a 30% lower mortality rate versus non wine drinkers.
Tip #4: Lastly and most excitedly, those who drink 2 glasses of wine daily on average have better sex than those who don’t.
Remember resveratrol, the magic ingredient we mentioned earlier? Well, versus white wine, red wine has the highest levels of resveratrol due to its prolonged interactions with the grape skins, seeds and stems. And Pinot Noir leads the way. This is an absolutely delicious red grape varietal and is most commonly grown in Germany, Austria, Oregon and California. So grab a glass and start improving not only your health but also your mood. Of course all of these heart healthy tips are only part of a larger, comprehensive health plan that includes, among other things, a balanced diet, exercise and the proper amounts of rest, all under the care of your doctor.
