Do you love having your nightly glass of wine? If so, then we have some good news. Drinking wine in moderation (one glass per day) can actually offer significant health benefits for your mind and body.
Here are just a few of the many health benefits that wine has been scientifically proven to provide:
Reduces Risk of Heart Disease and Heart Attacks
Heart disease is the number one cause of death among Americans. Fortunately, red wine contains procyanidins, which can help protect your body against heart disease. Wines from Sardinia and southwest France tend to have the highest levels of procyanidins.
Lowers Risk of Stroke
According to one study that followed more than 3,000 people over an eight year period, the possibility of suffering a blood clot-related stroke drops by about 50% in people who consume moderate amounts of alcohol.
Slows Brain Decline
A study performed by Columbia University concluded that brain function declined much more rapidly in nondrinkers than it did in moderate drinkers.
The fountain of youth might be in that bottle of pinot noir. A compound known as resveratrol is found in most red wines and has been linked to several anti-aging benefits.
Less Risk of Cancer
Cancer is the country’s second-leading cause of death, behind only heart disease. Luckily, wine can help protect you from this too. Wine has been proven to cut the risk of several different types of cancer including breast, colon, lung, and prostate.
Remember, the key to gaining these health benefits is by drinking in moderation – no more than one or two glasses per night. Preserve your bottles of wine by keeping them in a wine cooler; they are far better at retaining flavor and preventing oxidation than a normal refrigerator.
