HEALTH BENEFITS OF RED WINE
There is reason why it is said that drinking one glass of red wine per day is good for you.
Not only does red wine have a calming effect on the body to help you reduce stress after a long day, red grapes are are particularly high in antioxidants.
Of course moderation is key, but red wine has often been thought of as heart healthy by increasing levels of high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (also known as the “good” cholesterol) and protect against artery damage.
Antioxidants in red wine called polyphenols may help protect the lining of blood vessels in your heart, reducing risk of inflammation and blood clotting, both of which can lead to heart disease.
