Red wine is a drink that not only tastes great but also has several health benefits. The heady bouquet of well aged red wine, its fiery colour and its lingering taste all contribute to a unique experience. So, if you have not had your glass of red wine today, here are some health benefits of the beverage that will give you all the impetus you need to uncork that bottle.
Resveratol Anti Aging Benefits: Resveratol is a polyphenol, a naturally occurring substance in plants that acts as a biological line of defence from UV rays, stress, fungal and bacterial infections etc. Because red wine is produced by processing the seeds and skin of a fruit rich in resveratol, the fermentation process further adds to the amount of antioxidants in the wine, making it potent against age related maladies.
Prevents neuro-degenerative conditions: Studies conducted to understand the impact of red wine on the onset of neuro-degenerative conditions such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease have proven that moderate red wine consumption can aid in preventing these ailments in older people.
Good for cardiac health: Because the flavinoids and tannins in red wine help to increase the amount of good cholesterol or HDL cholesterol and reduce the amount of LDL or bad cholesterol in the blood stream, it contributes to cardiac and coronary health, preventing arterial blockages and reducing the risk of stroke and heart attacks.
Reduces the harmful effects of food poisoning: Since red wine helps to remove toxins from the body, it can not only reduce the intensity of the symptoms associated with food poisoning but also it can prevent dysentery and diarrhea associated with food contamination.
Helps in maintaining dental and gum health: Red wine can prove amazingly effective against gum ailments; particularly those that are caused due to inflammation of the muscles and weak teeth. The polyphenols in the red wine help to slow down the damage caused due to free radicals which can help to improve dental health by preventing the proliferation of bacteria inside the mouth.
Given the many clinical studies that have highlighted the health benefits of moderate red wine consumption, it would be safe to suggest that enjoying a glass of red wine in the evening while practicing healthy eating will help to keep you in good shape.
