The Benefits of Red Wine in Anti-Aging

 

 

Anti-Aging and Red Wine Benefits

Alcohol, in particular red wine, if drunk in moderation has several health benefits. In addition to alcohol, red wine contains many different types of antioxidants and other anti-aging substances, such as catechins. Reservatrol is the name of another miracle wine chemical you are going to hear more and more about in the future. Drinking two glasses of red wine a day was shown to protect against heart disease.

Beer and other types of alcoholic drinks may also have anti-aging effects if drunk in moderation. Certain scientists believe that it is better to have one or two alcoholic drinks a day than having no alcohol at all. Consuming more than this amount is, of course, not recommended. These observations are based on research which shows that teetotalers are more likely to have heart disease than people who consume a small amount of alcohol regularly.
