The 7 Remarkable Health Benefits Of Red Wine you need to know

Red wine is a type of wine made from dark-coloured (black) grape varieties.

The actual colour of the wine can range from intense violet, typical of young wines, through to brick red for mature wines and brown for older red wines.

Red wine has long been thought of as heart healthy. The alcohol and certain substances in red wine called antioxidants help prevent heart disease by increasing levels of high density lipoprotein, cholesterol and protecting against artery damage.


It also has a long history of use as an early form of medication being recommended as a safe alternative to drinking water, an antiseptic for treating wounds, a digestive aid, and as a cure for a wide range of ailments including diarrhea and pain from child birth.
The health benefits of drinking red wine include:

1. Memory Protection Against Alzheimer’s Disease: The powerful antioxidant resveratrol protects against cell damage and prevents age-related mental decline.

2. Cancer Treatment: Two separate studies by the University of Missouri, School of Medicine have shown that red wine can help in the treatment of certain cancers. In the first study published in 2012, they proved that resveratrol, an antioxidant found in red wine, sensitises prostate cancer cells so that they are more susceptible to treatment.

 As a result, patients of prostate cancer have better chances of recovery, even when they suffer from aggressive tumors.
Older research has already proven that red wine makes cancer cells more responsive to chemotherapy, a widely used treatment for cancer. The latest studies only add to the surmounting evidence that red wine fights cancer.

3. Promotes Long Life: Red wine drinkers have a 34% lower mortality rate than beer or vodka drinkers. Resveratrol is the polyphenol that could be responsible for its longevity benefits.

4. Lowers Risk Of Heart Disease and Stroke: Red wine tannins, which are what make red wine the color red, contain procyanidins known for protecting against heart disease. Resveratrol also helps to remove chemicals responsible for causing blood clots, which is the primary cause of coronary disease. A daily dose of red wine cuts blood clot-related stroke rates by 50%.

5. Lower your cholesterol: Healthy study participants who consumed the same grape supplement found in red wine saw their “bad cholesterol,” levels decrease by 9% among healthy. Participants with high cholesterol experienced a drop of 12%.

6. Control blood sugar: The skin of red grapes a rich source of red wine’s natural compound resveratrol may actually help diabetics regulate their blood sugar. Researchers suspect that resveratrol may help stimulate insulin secretion or activate a protein that helps regulate glucose and insulin sensitivity.

7. Red wine is good for your teeth: It is said that their acidity softens the enamel and makes your teeth more prone to cavities. But a recent study which appeared in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry shows red wine may actually improve dental health and prevent carries.

 Researchers discovered that red wine, with or without alcoholic content, can remove bacteria from the teeth.
