You love red wine. Everyone does. What can be more relaxing than a bath while drinking red wine, after a long hectic day. But you can’t have red wine daily. If you think that way then we have some good news for you. According to research consuming moderate amount of red wine daily is better than not consuming any. Read to find out.
1) Contains anti-oxidants:
Red wine is an abundant source of antioxidants. Anti oxidant help in the battle against free radicals that causes serious health problem like cancer. Antioxidants in red wine called polyphenols may help protect the lining of blood vessels in your heart.
2) Boosts immune system:
Wine can improve your immune system dramatically. But excessive consumption can lead to negative effects that defeat the whole purpose or drinking wine for an immunity boost.
3) Increases bone density:
Red wine has high levels of silicon, which is great for your bone mineral density. It increases the density and reduces the chance of osteoporosis. And like warm milk, it may help you doze off at night.
4) Reduces the risk of stroke:
Moderate consumption of wine - and alcohol in general - can prevent blood clotting. Wine acts as a natural blood thinner, breaking up any blood clots that could lead to a stroke. This lower risk of blood clotting is more beneficial to females than males.
5) Can lower cholesterol:
The Procyanidins in red wine that promote a healthy heart also promote lower cholesterol. All you have to do is pour yourself a glass of classic wine and enjoy the night.
6) Reduces the risk of cancer:
The risk of colon cancer, prostate cancer, and breast cancer can be reduced by drinking a glass of wine. The antioxidants combat nasty free radicals that allow cancer to thrive. Red wine especially is beneficial, as the Resveratrol that fights against heart disease also fights against cancerous cells.
7) Reduces risk of type 2 diabetes:
Resveratrol has been proven to improve sensibility to insulin. With insulin resistance contributing to type 2 diabetes risk, a nice glass of wine makes the list of things you can enjoy.
8) Promotes cognitive function:
The chemicals in red wine prevent the brain's neurons from dying off.
As a result, it protects the brain from dementia while slowing the onset of neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer's and Parkinson's.
9) Helps you relax
This may not be considered a health benefit, but drinking wine before you go to sleep may not only help you get a good sleep but will also help you relax and forget your worries.
Surely we have given you enough reasons to relish your glass of wine. Go ahead and relax yourself at the end of the day with a glass of red wine.
