What Are the Health Benefits of Wine?, ,

Whether it’s paired with a tasty meal or enjoyed on its own, wine is a popular and beloved alcoholic beverage. When consumed in modest quantities, which is about one glass for women and two for men per day, wine can provide many health benefits. Here are a few healthy reasons to drink more red and white wine.

4 Health Benefits of Red & White Wine

1. Improves Organ Function

Red and white wines contain phytochemicals, such as quercetin and resveratrol, which may prevent Barrett’s esophagus. Wine is also antimicrobial, which protects the stomach from bacteria that cause ulcers.

2. Prevents Chronic Disease

Red and white wines are rich in antioxidants. Resveratrol, in particular, has the potential to lower glucose levels and prevents the onset of diabetes. Wine is also a powerful anti-inflammatory, and it stops the formation of free radicals, which reduces the likelihood of esophageal, stomach, intestinal, and liver cancer.

3. Reduces Cardiovascular Damage

4. Supports Cholesterol

Moderate consumption of red and white wine may potentially increase HDL cholesterol. HDL is considered good cholesterol because it assists with removing unhealthy fats from your blood stream. As a result, people who drink wine in moderation may be less likely to develop clogged arteries or have a heart attack.
