In our former work of operating a winery we put tremendous effort towards crafting the finest wine around. We prided ourselves in being a care taker of the vine and a business that put a great product on the market. We have since shifted our focus to thinking about healthy living and how quality food can help with that. We still have a love of wine so we thought the first entry to our site should be about how wine, in particular red wine can be healthy for your heart and overall well being
Red wine is full of what doctors call antioxidants, which help the body prevent heart disease by increasing your levels of high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL) which is the type that is health for your body. It seems that red wines contain several types of antioxidants, like flavonoids, polyphenol and resveratrol. These types of antioxidants have been linked to increasing heart health. Research, perhaps done by a medical laboratory technician, shows that these antioxidants, in particular the resveratrol can protect the lining of the blood vessels in your heart. Furthermore, studies are showing that this antioxidant has also helped.
While drinking red wine as a way to get these good properties in your body may help, it is important to remember to drink alcohol in moderation. It is obvious that we have an affinity for wine, but we cannot stress enough how important it is to consume alcohol responsibly and in moderation. Drinking too much red wine may lead to too much alcohol in the blood stream which will then lead to impaired judgement and will be a determent for your heart and your overall health.
In closing, there are many aspects of being a healthy person. Drinking red wine in moderation may be an aspect of this. However, it is critical that your consume alcohol responsibly and make sure you that you are leading a healthy lifestyle overall. Getting proper sleep, adequate exercise and a balanced diet full of plant based foods can all lead to increased health and overall wellbeing. Making sure that you do not over do one area will help you remain in balance.
