Health Benefits Of Red Wine


Red wine tasting

Sophistication is a character that has been associated with red wine. But beyond that classy and distinctive taste, aroma, and texture that flow down your throat is a beverage loaded with healthy benefits. There are several reasons why you should become a wine lover. We’ll introduce seven surprising health benefits of red wine that you might have never heard of yet.

Red wine is generally made from grape fruits and the flavor that comes along with it is the product of a process known as fermentation. But this fact is something that a beginner would appreciate. Here’s for the seasoned drinker: this wine contains antioxidants or compounds that prevent cancer, diabetes, and other diseases.

According to Dr. Josh Axe, a certified clinical nutritionist and practitioner of natural medicine, red wine is rich in antioxidants such as resveratrol, flavonoids, and quercetin. Antioxidants are elements that fight off the causes of diseases such as cancer. For instance, resveratrol is known to be a strong protector against obesity, cardiovascular issues and more.

1. Reduces Risk Of Getting Cataracts

Cataracts are characterized as a white cloud-like appearance in the eyes of some people mainly due to aging. It is considered as a major cause of blindness worldwide and vision loss among people over 40 years old. Studies have shown that moderate drinkers are less likely to suffer from cataracts than non-drinkers or those that only consume beer.

2. Powers Up The Mind, Prevents Brain Decline

Old age is perhaps a phase that you can look forward to, but not all the body changes that come along with it. Some of these are brain decline, dementia, and Alzheimer’s disease. However, a Columbia University research revealed that the leaves used to make wine have components that may protect cells from degeneration, thus preventing the onset of these neurodegenerative diseases.

3. Has Chemicals Known To Fight Cancer

Drinking red wine may prevent cancer? You heard it right, as the wine has naturally-occurring chemicals – the same ones found in plants – that have properties which fight cancer. Another variety, the white wine, also contains these compounds but red wine has more of these.

4. Protects Against Diabetes

Wine intake has been associated with lower risks to diabetes because it contains compounds that have the capability to manage blood sugar levels, said authors of a new study published in the journal “Diabetologia.” These compounds known as polyphenol works with the body to maintain sugar levels within the right range.

5. Promotes Weight Loss

Many people tend to have body images. But red wine comes to the rescue and does a dual purpose while you are in parties -- gets you going in the conversation and gives you a better body figure. New research published in the International Journal of Obesity showed that resveratrol found in grapes and red wine may help in weight loss. Not only does wine give a slender figure but it also makes you more physically attractive. 

Now that you have learned these benefits, you might feel more confident now to pop that wine bottle and start sharing them with your friends.
