8 GOOD REASONS TO LOVE WINE
Taking advantage of the health benefits of red wine is not a new practice!
Research conducted at Harvard University found a jar in the tomb of King Scorpion I, dating all the way back to 3150 B.C.
that contains traces of wine along with herbal residue.
Pour yourself a glass and take a look at the eight ways wine benefits your health.
As in all things, moderation is key to a healthy lifestyle.
1. CONTAINS ANTIOXIDANTS
The antioxidants in red wine may help keep you healthy. They help fight infection and protect cells against the effects of free radicals, which may play role in cancer and other diseases.
2. BOOSTS THE IMMUNE SYSTEM
A daily glass of wine could be beneficial to health after scientists discovered moderate alcohol consumption can ward off infections and keep your immune system in check.
3. REDUCES THE RISK OF CANCER
Researchers at Harvard Medical School found that “Men who drink an average of four to seven glasses of red wine per week are only 52 percent as likely to be diagnosed with prostate cancer as those who do not drink red wine. In addition, red wine appears particularly protective against advanced or aggressive cancers.”
Drinking a glass of wine can reduce the risk of colon cancer, prostate cancer, and breast cancer. The antioxidants combat free radicals that allow cancer to thrive.
Red wine is especially beneficial as Resveratrol, a polyphenol found in wine, helps fight against heart disease also fights against cancerous cells. Resveratrol has gained attention for its multitude of benefits for the body.
4. INCREASES BONE DENSITY
Red wine has high levels of silicon, which is great for your bone mineral density. It increases the density and reduces the chance of osteoporosis.
Research has found that moderate amounts of wine (just one glass a day) can boost bone density, strengthen bones and reduce the risk of osteoporosis.
5. REDUCES THE RISK OF HEART DISEASE AND STROKE
Red wine, in moderation, has long been thought of as heart healthy.
Many doctors agree that something in red wine appears to help your heart. Polyphenols are the antioxidants in red wine which may help protect the lining of blood vessels in your heart.
It's possible that antioxidants, such as flavonoids including resveratrol, have heart-healthy benefits that may help prevent coronary artery disease, the condition that leads to heart attacks.
Wine acts as a natural blood thinner. Moderate consumption of wine and alcohol in general can prevent blood clotting and break up any blood clots that could lead to a stroke. This lower risk of blood clotting is more beneficial to females than males.
Red wine, in particular, contains phenol's that act as a blood thinner in a similar regard to aspirin – and resveratrol is mostly to thank. It is important to be aware light to moderate consumption may be good in preventing a stroke.
However, the opposite effect applies to heavy drinkers who are more likely to be have a higher risk of heart attacks.
As in all things, moderation is the way to go.
6. CAN LOWER CHOLESTEROL
Reservatrol also decreases LDL – bad cholesterol – while increasing the HDL – good cholesterol.
This also means that red wine benefits blood pressure, so if you’re suffering from high blood pressure, it’s best to pour a glass.
If you’re having trouble keeping your cholesterol levels on the good side, sip on a daily glass of medicinal red wine.
7. REDUCES THE RISK OF TYPE 2 DIABETES
Research published in the journal 'Nutrition' states that the skin of red grapes—a rich source of red wine's natural compound resveratrol, may actually help diabetics regulate their blood sugar.
Study participants who took a 250 mg resveratrol supplement once a day for three months had lower blood glucose levels than those who didn't take the pill.
Plus, resveratrol-takers also had significant decreases in total cholesterol and systolic blood pressure.
Researchers suspect that resveratrol may help stimulate insulin secretion or activate a protein that helps regulate glucose and insulin sensitivity.
8. IMPROVES COGNITIVE FUNCTION AND PROMOTES LONGEVITY
Drinking a glass of wine is like food for the brain and has been shown to improve brain function. The chemicals in red wine prevent the brain’s neurons from dying off.
As a result, it protects the brain from dementia while slowing the onset of neuro-degenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.
When you hear about healthy living and longevity, most often the Mediterranean diet comes up. Wine is a key component of their lifestyle, along olive oil and vegetables.
There is something magical inside the daily glass of wine that increases life span, and that is the magical ingredient, resveratrol.
Researchers at Harvard Medical School found that resveratrol activates a protein that acts as an anti-aging agent. The interaction increases overall health, thus promoting longevity.
Global Wine Shortage
Climate change has become a major issue and talking point globally because of its effects on the environment
and the potential repercussions on viniculture (wine production).
World-wide shortages of wine are occurring from events such as the recent fires that have all but destroyed the prime Californian wine growing region. The effects have been disastrous for growers and the US wine industry.
Further interest will be created in Australian wines due to wine production in other countries impacted by climate and weather issues. Rain and frost across Europe have reduced wine production by a reported 30% and severe drought across Africa will also exacerbate the global wine shortage.
