Some of us prefer red and some of us prefer white. What may I be talking about? Wine of course!
We all have our preferred colour and type of wine. Some of us prefer making our wine choices according to the food rather than having a select few favourites. But is it really good for you?
Studies have shown that people who drink wine have a 34% lower mortality rate than people who consume spirits or beer. This does not mean you can ‘guck’ down a bottle of wine each night and think you’ll live forever. Alcohol on its own has side effects and all alcohol should be taken in moderation. Drinking one small to moderate glass of wine each evening with dinner is perfect.
Drinking wine may have the following benefits:
- Lowers risk of heart disease
- Reduce risk of stroke
- Lowers risk of cataracts
- Lowers risk of developing Type 2 diabetes
- Lowers risk of colon cancer
- Improves brain function
There are about 130 calories in one class of wine, but if you have a healthy lifestyle, eating fruits and veg rather than fats and sugars, 130 calories will not make the world of difference when it comes to gaining weight. Moderation is the key.
To receive more of the above health benefits you can also get an Ozone Steam Sauna, which is great for your health. This will detox your body from unnecessary toxins and impurities, making you feel full of energy. Ozone therapy may also improve your skin, fight inflammation, breaks up cholesterol, lower blood pressure, improves blood circulation, combats anxiety and depression and strengthen the immune system.
Will you be enjoying a glass of wine regularly?
