Did you know these 4 health benefits of wine!

If I told you an alcoholic beverage has positive advantages for your health, you would most likely laugh at me. Well, you would be pleasantly surprised that I was not joking. Researchers have found a lot of health benefits from consuming wine, albeit in moderate proportions. This has been validated by scientific studies.

One of the alcoholic beverages that can substantially more health benefits than others is wine. The key reason behind this is that wine is a naturally fermented product. It can thus be compared to other products such as yogurt and pickles that are known to improve the amount of “good bacteria” in our bodies. Let us look at some of the health benefits. Remember, of course, that the amount should be moderate to realize the effects.

Mortality

Wine drinkers, for example, enjoy longer mortality than drinkers of other alcoholic beverages. And this is particularly true when you take the case of red wine enthusiasts. The reason being that red wine contains procyanidins which shield us against cardiac diseases. These compounds are found in a lot of fruits, including the common grape. Apples contain high amounts if procyanidins, which is the reason behind the well-known phrase – An apple a day keeps the doctor away.

Anti-ageing and anti-cancer

While there are definitely some truths on this regard, studies have been inconsistent. Nevertheless, what is known for certain is that red grapes consist of a compound called Resveratrol, that releases anti-oxidants. Anti-oxidants are well known to us as they eliminate the free radicals that age cells and cause malignant cells.

Blood sugar levels

Drinking a modicum of wine after your meal seems to have a positive effect on blood sugar levels. It reduces glucose tolerance on certain type of people, according to clinical trials. Note that this produces positive results only when consumer after a meal. It is a possible reason why cases of confronting type 2 diabetes are lower for wine consumers.

Mental health

In large quantities, alcohol consumption has a positive exponential correlation with cases of depression and mental instability. In moderate quantities, defined as less than 7 wine glasses a week by researchers in Spain, wine consumption can reduce depression. The effect surprisingly even extends beyond, with some studies showing that moderate wine consumption can reduce risk of Alzheimer’s and Dementia.

Studies continue to this day to establish a proper positive correlation between wine consumption and health effects by isolating and fixating all other variables when conducting clinical trials. While you should never take us for our word here, a moderate wine indulgence in parallel with other positive life choices will ensure a healthy lifestyle for you.

These 6 wine selections will bring the world at your footstep

Throughout the ages, man has always had an inclination for good wine. During the time of the Romans, wine was a luxury only the wealthy could afford. However as times have changed, wine has become something of a commodity. So much so that there are tens of millions of brands out there today that manufacture decent wine.

A great wine has a noticeable taste, be it sweet bitter, sour or spicy. The taste is very much essential to the food that you eat. Meat, for example, pairs perfectly with wine as a general concept. The leaner the meat, the lighter the wine that you should consume. It is for this reason that steaks go well with a rich and flavor intensive red wine.
