Wine is Good for You!
Wine is Good for You
You’ve been drinking wine for years and enjoying every drop of it.
You just always looked at it as your end-of-the-day reward, a little something just for you. Well, now you can pat yourself on the back because it turns out you’re doing something very good for your health.
Live Longer by Drinking Wine?
Scientific studies have now been done, proving that one to two, four-ounce glasses of wine a day are very beneficial to your health. A Finnish study recently showed that wine drinkers have a 34% lower rate of mortality than any other kind of alcohol drinkers, including beer drinkers.
Your Heart Loves Wine
People who have high blood pressure and drink wine are 30 percent less likely to have a heart attack than non-drinkers! That’s a pretty good reason to drink (moderately) right there.
Protection from Diabetes
It also seems that moderate drinkers have a 30% less chance of developing diabetes than non-drinkers.
The Eyes Have It
Wine drinkers were 43% less likely to develop cataracts than those drinking mainly beer.
Wine Helps Prevent Brain Drain
Believe it or not, drinking moderately helps slow the decline in brain function as we age. Imagine, drinking helps you keep your smarts!
Wine Has Anti-Oxidants
Moderate wine drinkers (especially red wine) have higher levels of antioxidants in their blood than non-drinkers. This is great news, as antioxidants play a huge role in preventing disease.
Don’t let anyone tell you drinking wine is not good for you. Wine has been around for thousands of years for a reason!
Moderate wine drinking is not only good for your health, it’s a pleasurable activity that is a wonderful way to relax, especially at the end of a long day. Why not give your health a boost and treat yourself to some wonderful relaxation at the same time?
Thank G.. for this article, I was starting to get worried. Pfffhewww
Ahhh! I’m sitting here drinking my one (1) glass of wine just before bed time. I’m not a wine connoisseur, far from it. My choice has to do with my wallet, and hearty California Burgundy has been my choice for many years. I’m sipping a glass of it as we speak.
I’m sipping my moderate daily dose as I read your comment for the first time!
(Then, suddenly sure I must have seen your comment before – as I do the moderation of comments – I think maybe there’s a special ingredient in this particular brand of (Spanish) wine…?)
This is true. My grandmother dranked wine everyday and live to be almost 90 years old. Also, she would only eat junk food.
I love my wine. Thank you for this informative article, Angie. Santé!
Thank you for reading, dear Kristin.
Thanks for writing this great article on the multiple benefits of wine. I’ve shared it on all my media.
Everyone I know who has drank wine in moderation has lived long and prospered. As we say in Czech, “Na zdraví!”
My dearest of friends.
