This is bound to happen if you drink too much, but when done moderately, drinking wine actually has numerous benefits. Already it is known to preserve the brain and help with certain heart conditions. Nowadays, there even numerous wine tours to popular vineyards, so that people can learn more about the wine-making process. Swan Valley tours are some of those tours that are centered around wine tasting. In this article, we are going to take a look at the 4 benefits of drinking wine.
Feed your head
Wine is good for the memory because it could preserve it. According to research done on women in their 70s, daily drinkers scored more than those who drunk less or didn’t drink at all. This means that besides the fact that wine can prevent clots and reduce blood vessel inflammation, it also raises HDL, which is good cholesterol. These have been associated with cognitive decline and heart disease, while the cholesterol helps unclog the arteries.
Keep the scale in your corner
According to studies, people that drunk wine more often has a lower body mass than those that drink less, don’t drink at all or drink liquor. Alcohol can stimulate the body into burning extra calories for up to an hour and a half after finishing the drink. This includes beer.
Boost body defenses
Drinking at least a glass of wine a day reduces the risk of infection by Helicobacter pylori bacteria by up to 11%. This bacteria is known of cause gastritis, ulcers, and stomach cancers. It also protects the body against germs like salmonella, which is responsible for food poisoning.
Guard against ovarian woes
According to Australian researchers, and the University of Hawaii, recent studies showed that women that drunk at least one glass of wine a day reduced the risk of ovarian cancer by up to 50%. They suspect that the antioxidants or phytoestrogens, found in the wine have high anticancer properties. Another research by the University of Michigan shows that red wine compounds aided in the termination of ovarian cancer cells in a test tube.
