Relax with a bottle of Cab
Nearly everyone enjoys unwinding at the end of the day with a glass of Cabernet Sauvignon. We here so much about how drinking alcoholic beverages in excess adversely affects our health, we actually forget that there is plenty of scientific evidence to prove that moderate consumption of wine on a daily basis, can have significant health benefits. We thought we would share some of the current information that underscores this premise. Consider the following:
One of the most significant components regarding all wines, is the presence of antioxidants in wine. Antioxidants are believed to protect the body’s cells and tissues from damage that can lead to the development of diseases such as cancer. Scientists believe that the antioxidants primarily come from the colored skins of grapes.
Heart health and red wine
Many medical studies have been published about how drinking red wine, may protect the heart. In fact, an article published in 2014, researchers studied Italians who consumed significant or daily amounts of red wine, and found a lower incidence of heart disease and cancer.
Other health benefits
Researchers at the Texas A&M Health Science College of Medicine found that a component found in red wine may help prevent age-related memory decline. Researchers in Korea found that a compound which is found in red grapes, can block cellular processes that allow fat cells to develop and grow. Our position is that wine is to be desired for its taste, and if it provides any health benefits, that just makes the beverage even more remarkable.
