10 facts about the benefits of wine

Believe it or not: a glass of red wine a day will have health benefits! Many studies emphasize the beneficial properties of antioxidants present in this drink and their benefits in the fight against certain diseases. Scientific studies have proven that by consuming 1-2 glasses per day, red wine helps to prevent cardiovascular diseases, strengthens the immune system or even slows down the development of Alzheimer’s disease.
So, 10 facts about the effect of wine on health:

The fight against Alzheimer’s disease
An American study published in February 2015 in the journal Scientific Reports highlights the effects of resvetatrol, an antioxidant found in grape skins, on memory retention. It is particularly effective in the treatment of memory impairment after the age of 60 and for patients with Alzheimer’s disease.


Prevention of cardiovascular diseases
Resveratrol is also considered a solution to cardiovascular problems. According to the World Health Organization, it reduces the risk of heart attack and infarction by 40%. The vasodilating properties of this antioxidant increase the diameter of blood vessels and thereby facilitate blood circulation.


Activate weight loss
Red wine activates a gene that prevents the formation of fat cells and helps remove existing fat. The Massachusetts Institute of Technology has demonstrated its effects on fitness in several scientific publications, noting that the results are more noticeable when wine is consumed as part of a balanced diet.


Reducing the risk of lung cancer
Moderate consumption of red wine reduces the risk of lung cancer in men, according to a report in the Journal of the American Association for Cancer Research. On average, each glass of red wine consumed each month reduces the risk of lung cancer by 2% in middle-aged men and by 60% in smokers, provided one to two glasses are consumed per day.


Extending life expectancy
Men who drink a glass of wine a day live 3.8 years longer than nondrinkers, according to a 2007 study by Dutch researchers. Their risk of developing dementia is also 85% lower. Therefore, moderate consumption of red wine can not only prolong life, but also its quality.


Reducing the side effects of radiation therapy
A patient who consumes red wine while undergoing cancer treatment? That’s what an Italian clinical study suggests, showing that women who were treated for breast cancer with radiation therapy while drinking wine in moderation had fewer side effects than women who didn’t. Red wine will help restore skin cells and, therefore, fight radiation.


Reducing stress
A small glass of red will really help you relax! A study by the University of California demonstrated the relaxing properties of wine. An enzyme found in the skin of grapes deactivates the cellular response system to stress. Endorphins increase and tension decreases, causing an almost immediate relaxation effect.


Treatment of erectile dysfunction
Men who regularly drink wine in moderation are less likely to experience erectile dysfunction. A joint study by the universities of Harvard and East Anglia gives this surprising conclusion. All the credit goes to flavonoids, pigments found mainly in blueberries, blackberries, radishes and red wine.


Destruction of bacteria
Gingivitis or tartar can be treated at the dentist or with a glass of wine! Wine has the ability to prevent the appearance of streptococci and bacteria in the oral cavity. In addition, it is effective against gingivitis and sore throat. Still, it would take 60 to 80% alcohol in the blood to completely eradicate the virus (which we obviously don’t recommend trying to achieve!).


Fighting fatigue
The resveratrol in grapes will help relieve fatigue and stimulate the nervous system during a particularly difficult day, according to a study published in The FASEB Journal. But be careful: if a glass of wine has a stimulating effect, skipping 2 glasses will make you want to sleep!
