10 reasons why drinking wine is good for you

10 reasons why drinking wine is good for you

Wine is not just another alcoholic drink. It is often called the nectar of Gods, it has been around for thousands of years, and it is probably the oldest known drink besides water. Plato said that nothing more excellent or valuable than wine was ever granted by the gods to man, and we have no ambition to contradict Plato!

The list of health benefits of drinking wine – moderately, of course – is long and is becoming longer every year. Forget about the apple, one glass of wine a day will most definitely keep the doctor away! It’s not only red wine that has health benefits, but white wine too – red wine is richer in polyphenols, but the antioxidants contained in white wine are stronger!

Take a look at the top 10 reasons why drinking wine is good for you:

Controls your cholesterol level

Studies have confirmed that red wine raises the level of HDL or ‘good cholesterol’, which helps unclog your arteries. It is recommended to have one or two glasses with a meal every day.

Supports better blood circulation

Light-red wines help expand blood vessels thus helping circulation. Recommendation: have one small glass of wine with each meal, a maximum of three times a day.

Prevents heart disease

Red wine is rich in an antioxidant called resveratrol that may help protect the lining of blood vessels in your heart. In order to profit from red wine’s antioxidant benefits, one should have a light-red wine with meals and before going to sleep. Men should have 0,3 liters a day and women should have 0,2 liters a day.

Good for stress relief

If you are constantly stressed, a glass of wine may be of help. You should take a break and have a glass of wine slowly and enjoy every sip. No particular wine is recommended; you should have your favorite wine. Still, bear in mind that red wines calm and relax, while white wines energize.

Can help prevent colds

Traditional medicine has said that drinking wine can prevent the common cold because it can help kill viruses and bacteria. Scientists have proven that moderate wine drinking can boost immunity to colds up to 85 percent.

Will help cure a sore throat

Take wine in small sips and let it glide over your tongue and swallow slowly. This is believed to help cure a sore throat. You can heat the wine and add spices to make mulled wine, but pay attention not to boil it – too high a temperature will destroy all the vitamin C and iron the wine contains.

Helps prevent anemia

Moderate drinking of red wine can help prevent and even cure anemia. It is recommended to have a small glass of wine with your lunch every day and a glass of wine every evening.

Supports your weight loss.

Alcohol and weight loss are considered enemies, but studies have shown that people who drink wine daily actually have a lower body mass, narrower waists, and less abdominal fat than people who drink liquor.

Helps build better bones

A study has shown a connection between moderate wine consumption and increased bone mineral density. The positive effect of wine on the health of bones has been proven for women, but there is research suggesting that wine can have beneficial effects on men’s bones too.

Will help you stay younger

Wine drinkers have been found to have up to 40 percent more antioxidants in their bodies compared to non-wine drinkers. Antioxidants ‘catch’ free radicals and prevent cell aging. Wine lovers on average live longer and stay younger and more vital.

10 reasons why drinking wine is healthyNote:

Moderate drinking or drinking moderately has been mentioned several times in this article. Moderation is the key to profit from the beneficial effects of wine. Recommended quantities are not more than 0,3 liters a day. And no, drinking the whole bottle doesn’t double or triple the benefits!

This article is only informational and meant to be interesting. It is not based on any scientific studies. However, many studies through the years have shown a positive link between moderate wine drinking and good health. 

A report from 2019 explains a link between drinking red wine and a lower risk of coronary heart disease: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6804046/

Other studies are even investigating the role of red wine in human cancer cell growth: https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/30366081/

An explanation of the French Paradox is thoroughly covered in this comprehensive review: https://www.ahajournals.org/doi/full/10.1161/CIRCULATIONAHA.117.030387

You could find many scientific studies confirming or disapproving different benefits, but instead of a conclusion, we offer You the undisputed truth we started with – Wine is not just another alcoholic drink.
