5 Healthy Reasons to Drink Sangria, Honolulu, Hawaii

Sangria is a refreshing alcoholic beverage made of red or white wine and fresh fruit, with some recipes calling for a splash of spirits and syrup. The Spanish drink has gained widespread popularity among the health-conscious for the following benefits.

What Are the Health Benefits of Sangria?

1. Delivers Nutritional Value 

Sangria contains vitamins C along with other nutrients. The type of fruit added to the wine can affect the nutritional content as well. Choose a recipe that includes oranges and strawberries for higher concentrations of vitamin C

2. Reduces Inflammation

The resveratrol in wine has anti-inflammatory properties. Drinking sangria and similar drinks in moderation may help you fight inflammatory diseases like arthritis and cardiovascular disease. Resveratrol also increases good cholesterol levels.

3. Lowers Calorie Intake

WineBecause sangria recipes vary, the calorie count differs from glass to glass. However, if you stick to wine and fruit to sweeten your drink, the drink is much lower in calories compared to other cocktails that incorporate more sugar and syrups.

4. Contributes to Anti-Aging

If you’re feeling your age, resveratrol has more benefits for you. Studies on mice have found the compound helps protect neurons from age-related degeneration, maintaining your brain function. The antioxidants in wine also safeguard against skin cell breakdown to keep you looking youthful.

5. Supports Oral Health

Both red and white wine have been found to combat oral bacteria, which lowers your risk for tooth decay and cavities. The antioxidants in the drink may also help you avoid or counteract gum disease.
