Why Wine in the Summer?
We all recall summertime outside by the pool with a cool refreshing beverage and a group of friends. It sounds pretty amazing, and hopefully, we will all get back to that soon. Some like to have glasses filled with adult beverages. Those may be assisting in your health plan without you even knowing it.
Most have heard that a glass of red wine can help the heart (which is true, although it doesn’t have to be red). There are a few other benefits to drinking wine in moderation. The ultimate key is moderation.
It is essential to consult with a doctor if you have any pre-existing conditions or are taking any medications that prohibit having alcohol. In most cases, consuming a small glass of wine, in moderation, can provide some health benefits that can boost and supplement nutrition plans.
Wine Consumption Health Benefits:
- Healthier Heart
- Fight Against Lung Disease
- Fight Against Various Forms of Cancer
- Lower Risk of Cataracts
- Lower Risk of Type 2 Diabetes
The main ingredient that gives the wine the ability to assist in nutritional plans is its high level of antioxidants from the grapes. Red wines and white wines use all different types of recipes to change the taste. The grapes used to make wine contains nutrients and antioxidants that can be valuable to our bodies. There is no call for an all wine diet.
Nobody dives straight to the bottom of a bottle and makes claims they are the healthiest person known. Knowing that a particular beverage, when used correctly and in moderation, can benefit us is helpful. In the long run, it may help us feel better about popping a cork the next time we can have friends over this summer.
