Kick back with your favorite glass of Moscato wine tonight. Wine is shown to have a variety of health benefits. Wine can reduce your risk of heart disease and stroke and even increase your life span.
See the five ways that wine can benefit your health:
1. Improves cholesterol
A study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine, done by researchers from Ben-Gurion University of the Negev in Israel, found that those who drank red wine in moderation had increased levels of good HDL cholesterol compared to those who drank dry white wine or mineral water every night.
2. Enhances sleep quality
The same study found that those who drank a glass of red wine every night reported that they had a better night’s sleep.
3. Can Enables your body to absorb sugar and calories from food better
According to Dr. James O’Keefe, chief of preventive cardiology at Saint Luke’s Mid America Heart Institute in Kansas City, one glass of red wine before or with your dinner can help your body digest and absorb nutrients of food better.
4. It is full of antioxidants
There are two major antioxidants in grapes: resveratrol in the grape skin and proanthocyanidin in the seed. These antioxidants protect against free radical damage, which is a form of oxidative stress that amplifies aging effects on both the body (wrinkles, heart disease) and mind (Alzheimer’s).
5. Increases your life span
A glass of red wine can boost longevity genes that increase your lifespan.
