Which Wine is Best for You and Your Health?
The potential of red wine
There are a lot of health advantages to red wine as opposed to white wine. The main ones that you’ll want to know about when you are deciding whether or not to indulge in that glass or not, include:
- Antioxidant properties: Rich with antioxidants, red wine is thought to help “keep you young”, longer. Oxidation occurs from our environment, our food sources, and UV exposure. This leads to premature aging aesthetically as well as physically. Wine’s antioxidant properties help combat that aging!
- Antiinflammatory traits: Inflammation in the body can compromise immunity as well as cause joint pain and more. Since wine also has antiinflammatory agents in it, it’s a great way to help minimize natural inflammation.
- Helps combat obesity: Obesity can’t be cured by wine, but it can help counteract obesity markers in those who are predisposed to it through genetics. It also helps satiate appetite, making those who want t manage their weight less likely ot snack!
Picking your wine choice carefully
Wine is a great health choice when you are looking at the idea of enjoying a healthy drink. However, not just any wine is going to do. Quality helps you know that you are enjoying a great taste that also delivers those health perks with each sip. Contra Costa Wine is dedicated to delivering both in every bottle, providing you with the healthy and high-quality wine that you deserve for a true guilt-free drink.
White wine is thought to have some great health benefits, but experts agree that more research is needed since white wine lacks many of the polyphenic compounds that contribute to red wine’s health perks.
While drinking a lot of wine in one day isn’t a good idea, nor healthy, enjoying that red that you’ve bought as a treat for yourself is going to be a wonderful advantage socially and emotionally, as well as physically.
