8 Health Benefits of Drinking Wine
Every year, there is a flurry of headlines about the health benefits of wine. But can drinking wine really make a difference? Here, the news—very good news, indeed—from the latest studies. Note: The health benefits come from moderate wine consumption, defined by the American Heart Association as one to two four-ounce glasses a day.
The Benefit: Promotes Longevity
The Evidence: Wine drinkers have a 34 percent lower mortality rate than beer or spirits drinkers. Source: a Finnish study of 2,468 men over a 29-year period, published in the Journals of Gerontology, 2007.
The Benefit: Reduces Heart-Attack Risk
The Evidence: Moderate drinkers suffering from high blood pressure are 30 percent less likely to have a heart attack than nondrinkers. Source: a 16-year Harvard School of Public Health study of 11,711 men, published in the Annals of Internal Medicine, 2007.
The Benefit: Lowers Risk of Heart Diseaserocyanidins, which protect against heart disease. Wines from Sardinia and southwest France have more procyanidins than other wines. Source: a study at Queen Mary University in London, published in Nature, 2006.
The Benefit: Reduces Risk of Type 2 Diabetes
The Evidence: Moderate drinkers have 30 percent less risk than nondrinkers of developing type 2 diabetes. Source: research on 369,862 individuals studied over an average of 12 years each, at Amsterdam's VU University Medical Center, published in Diabetes Care, 2005.
The Benefit: Lowers Risk of Stroke
The Evidence: The possibility of suffering a blood clot–related stroke drops by about 50 percent in people who consume moderate amounts of alcohol. Source: a Columbia University study of 3,176 individuals over an eight-year period, published in Stroke, 2006.
The Benefit: Cuts Risk of Cataracts
The Evidence: Moderate drinkers are 32 percent less likely to get cataracts than nondrinkers; those who consume wine are 43 percent less likely to develop cataracts than those drinking mainly beer. Source: a study of 1,379 individuals in Iceland, published in Nature, 2003.
The Benefit: Cuts Risk of Colon Cancer
The Evidence: Moderate consumption of wine (especially red) cuts the risk of colon cancer by 45 percent. Source: a Stony Brook University study of 2,291 individuals over a four-year period, published in the American Journal of Gastroenterology, 2005.
The Benefit: Slows Brain Decline
The Evidence: Brain function declines at a markedly faster rate in nondrinkers than in moderate drinkers. Source: a Columbia University study of 1,416 people, published in Neuroepidemiology, 2006.

Health benefits of drinking red wine
While the dangers of excess alcohol consumption being common knowledge these days, recent research has suggested that there are health benefits with drinking red wine in moderation. Yes, the limits are one glass of wine for women, and two for men. And this will come as good news for wine-lovers around the world as long as you draw the line when it comes to drinking wine in moderation.
In a study conducted on mice with Alzheimer’s disease, results have shown that red win slows down the memory deterioration that happens with these patients who have this disease. In addition, Reservatrol is known to destroy the plaques that are generated with Alzheimer’s while also having neuro-protective properties as well.
Not only does non-alcoholic red wine prevent bacteria from attacking their tooth enamel but the anti-inflammatory properties of polyphenols (found in grapes) also prevent one from getting gingivitis, which occurs due to inflammation of the gums.
Red wine acts as a tranquilizer (again when taken in moderate quantities) and is known to be equally effective with people who suffer from nervous disorders including those who struggle with anxiety and stress. It also helps one sleep well, if taken in moderate amounts.
Reservatrol acts as an antioxidant which works against the growth of cancer cells, minimizes the DNA mutations that occur in the case of cancer and destroys cancer cells as well, benefiting those with ovarian and prostrate cancer.
For your better health!
