10 + 1 reasons to drink wine

Strengthens bones

According to a study from Tufts University in Boston (USA) women who drink red or white wine are less likely to lose bone density than women who do not drink.

Reduce Heart Risk

A study from Harvard University (USA.) Found that those who consume wine in moderation are 30% less likely to suffer a heart attack.


Both red wine and white wine have antibacterial properties. This was highlighted by the study conducted by the expert Martin E. Weisse of West Virginia University (USA), which shows that the wine has the capability to reduce bacteria in food, protecting the human body.

Prevent Blindness

Red wine can stop the growth of blood vessels out of control in the eye (angiogenesis) that causes blindness, according to a study by a team of researchers from the University of Washington School of Medicine in St. Louis (USA ). Again is resveratrol, the compound may be in the wine, which protects vision.

Against depression

According to a study of scientists in Spanish universities, drinking wine can reduce the risk of depression. The experiment was conducted with 2,683 men and 2,822 women (55 to 80 years old, over 7 years). They found that in both cases, those drinking 6 or 7 glasses of wine per week were less likely to be diagnosed with depression (even taking into account lifestyle factors).

Lowers cholesterol

Studies have proven that a glass of red wine a day decreases the concentration of atherogenic plaques in the arteries and increases levels of HDL or good cholesterol, improving cardiovascular health.

Decreases the chances of colon cancer

Scientists at the University of Leicester (UK) explained that moderate consumption of red wine on a regular basis can reduce the rate of intestinal tumors by approximately 50%.

It helps prevent dementia

A team of scientists from Loyola University Medical Center (USA) analyzed data from academic studies on red wine from 1977 until today. The studies showed a significantly lower risk of dementia on regular and moderate drinkers of red wine in 14 different countries. Resveratrol reduces the stickiness of platelets in the blood, which helps keep blood vessels open and flexible (no clots), which helps to maintain good blood supply to the brain.

Rich in minerals

Wine provides minerals such as: lithium (balancing the nervous system), magnesium (reduces stress), zinc (improves the immune system), potassium and calcium (ionic and electrical balance).

Slows aging

Consuming a glass of wine a day helps to delay the aging process due to its vasodilatory properties that fight oxidation of cells. It is also recommended for memory.

Prevents Breast Cancer

Drinking any kind of alcohol increases the risk of breast cancer. However, consumption of red wine has the opposite effect, as concluded a study of the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles (USA). The reason is that the chemicals in the skin and seeds of red grapes reduce estrogen levels and increase testosterone levels, resulting in a lower risk of developing breast cancer.
