Wine Health Benefits

Posted by Robyn on 2/21/2014 to Wine Tasting
You may have heard the latest scoop on all the health benefits that stem from drinking wine.  Now certainly, anything in excess is not the healthiest habit, but when consumed moderately, there can be many health benefits from drinking a glass of wine.  A major component of benefit from drinking wine has been resveratrol.  Controlled scientific experiments have revealed that resveratrol can help with the treatment of some cancers, increase metabolism, help a person to maintain and lose weight and even prevent the production of some viruses.
 
Resveratrol comes from different sources, but mainly from berries like blueberries, cranberries and others.  The highest amount of resveratrol has been found in grapes, which is essentially the main ingredient found in wine.
 
Many other health benefits come from wine drinking, and another component of benefit that is present in wines is proanthocyanidin.  Proanthocyanidin is an important compound that is actually used today in many modern medicines.  It can reduce the production of histamines by natural process and therefore makes a great treatment for allergies.  It has also been proven to help with blood circulation and inhibit the body’s enzymes that break down collagen, which will serve to prevent wrinkles and keep skin smooth and supple.
 
Drinking wine has been found to aid in the body’s defense against many forms of bacteria that could otherwise make one sick.  Many short-term effects come from drinking wine in moderation.  It can help you to de-stress, and the influence it has on your cardiovascular system is not to be disregarded.  Always, as with just about everything, moderation holds the key to its health benefit.  When abused, alcohol has tremendous side effects and none of these benefits occur.

Here’s to your health!
