Does Drinking Red Wine Have Health Perks?, Lakeville, Minnesota

Though you’ve likely heard that red wine is healthy, you may wonder whether or not it’s good for you. Varieties such as cabernet sauvignon, sangiovese, pinot noir, and zinfandel do contain several important nutrients and minerals, but moderation is key to enjoying the benefits. Below is more about red wine and how to drink it in a healthy way. 

Is Red Wine Good for You?

Potentially Longer Life Expectancy

According to an analysis of the Mediterranean Diet, moderate wine consumption is thought to prolong the average life span.Combined with limiting red meat and eating generous portions of vegetables, men and women who drink a glass or two of red wine per day may live longer and experience fewer health issues as they age. 

Numerous Benefits

red wineRed wine contains a high quantity of antioxidants, which protect soft tissues by eliminating free radicals from the body. Red wine is a natural blood thinner, potentially preventing strokes by breaking up clots in the bloodstream. It can also improve blood cells to promote healthy circulation. Red wine may also protect the body from heart disease and aggressive cancers

Pour Size Is Key

Red wine, in excess, can have a few negative effects on the body, which is why pour size is important. Despite any large, globular wine glasses you may have, keep in mind that the proper serving size of wine is five ounces. Since women have lower levels of alcohol metabolizing enzymes in the liver, they should limit wine consumption to one glass per day. Men, however, can generally enjoy two safely.
