Sara Evans tells People that she loves her cabernet. "This isn't really a beauty routine, but it makes me super happy therefore making me more beautiful: a glass of red wine and great conversation with the man I love. I like Leese-Fitch cabernet because there's no corkscrew needed."
Sara should be happy to know that red wine also has health benefits as long as you don't drink in excess and keep consumption at no more than 24 ounces per day.
Here are the Top Four Health Benefits according to FitDay .
1. Red Wine is Good for Your Heart
Red wine contains resveratrol, a powerful antioxidant compound. Resveratrol also protects your heart and arteries against the effects of saturated fat in your diet, so drinking one or two glasses of red wine a day can help protect your heart and prevent cardiovascular disease.
2. Red Wine Contains Antioxidants
In addition to resveratrol, red wine contains a number of other antioxidants, which can slow the signs of aging and prevent a number of degenerative illnesses like type 2 diabetes. Drinking one or two glasses of red wine each day can help protect you from many of the diseases of the elderly, such as osteoporosis.
3. Red Wine Prevents Cancer
Mounting evidence suggests that drinking red wine in moderation can help prevent cancer. The many antioxidants in red wine can help prevent the oxidative damage responsible for the process of aging and for many degenerative conditions like Alzheimer's, type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
4. Red Wine Prevents Tooth Decay
Red wine, even non alcoholic red wine, hardens your enamel to prevent tooth decay. Hardened enamel is more resistant to Streptococcus mutans, the bacteria which lives on your teeth and is responsible for tooth decay.
