When the dark-colored red grapes get crushed and fermented, you get the delicious red wine. Different types of red wine may vary in color and taste. If you’re one of the many people who enjoy a glass of red wine with dinner, you may be pleased to know that your favorite beverage can be good for your heart health.
Antioxidants in red wine
Studies have shown that moderate red wine consumption can improve heart health because red wine is rich in antioxidants.
The powerful antioxidants include resveratrol, catechin, epicatechin, and proanthocyanidins. Especially resveratrol and proanthocyanidins are responsible for the health benefits of red wine. Proanthocyanidins reduce oxidative damage in the body and prevent heart disease and cancer.
Resveratrol found in the grape skin fights inflammation and blood clotting and reduces the risk of heart disease and cancer. However, resveratrol content in red wine is low, so it’s highly advisable to obtain it from supplements.
Health benefits of red wine
Red wine lowers the risk of cardiovascular disease, stroke, and premature death.
Small amounts of red wine may lower the risk of heart disease by assisting in the retention of good HDL cholesterol levels in the blood. It also reduces oxidative damage and oxidation of LDL cholesterol by up to 50%.
Other health benefits of drinking wine
- Decreased risk of dementia
- Cancer risk reduction
- Reduced risk of type 2 diabetes.
- Lower risk of insulin resistance
- Polyphenols improve gut health by increasing gut microbiota.
- According to one study, resveratrol protects against brain damage after a stroke.
- Resveratrol protects against vision loss by lowering inflammation and oxidative stress.
