Are you a wine alcoholic? How does daily consumption effect your body?


red wine benefits

If you think you drink wine too often, think again!

Here are some great new studies that can make your arguments stronger next time someone calls you an alcoholic! If you are reading this, that day might be today, so you should arm yourself with these facts.

The antioxidant resveratrol, which is found in red wine and other foods like nuts and soy, is known for its ability to decrease incidence of heart disease and other illnesses, leading some to call it the “elixir of youth.” Researchers at the Scripps Research Institute now have an explanation for how it works.

Resveratrol (prounounced rez-veer-a-trole) is an organic compound found in grapes and other foods, but especially red wine. The effects of this chemical on human health have been disputed over the years, but it has been reported to extend lifespan, provide cardiovascular, anti-diabetic, and anti-cancer effects. Scientists have argued for years about how it works, but a team from SRI now claims that resveratrol activates an evolutionary defence mechanism in human cells — one that in turn protects the integrity of our DNA.
