Reasons Why I Love Wine

Scientists believe the red wine reduces the risk of coronary heart disease by reducing production of low density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol and boosting high density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol. Coronary heart disease reduced (University of California, Davis, 1995) Arteries kept clean by polyphenols in red grape skins (William Harvey Research Institute, 2002) Atherosclerosis: Red wine may prevent the initiation and progression of atherosclerosis (hardening or "furring" of the arteries). Both the alcohol and polyphenols in the red wine appear to favorably maintain healthy blood vessels by promoting the formation of nitric oxide (NO), the key chemical relaxing factor that plays an important role in the regulation of vascular tone.

Lower risk of heart attack for men with high blood pressure (Worcester Medical Center in Massachusetts, 2004) Hypertension: There is some evidence of favorable effects of red wine on blood pressure. Two glasses of red wine (250 ml); taken together with the meal, lower post-meal blood pressure in hypertensive persons.

Wine helps prevent the possibility of various neuro-degenerative illnesses and diseases. Studies show that because of the high resveratrol content of red wine, its properties can help avoid aging people to develop diseases and illnesses common among them such as Parkinson's disease and Alzheimer's disease.

It can cure and prevent various gum diseases. Caused by inflamed muscles in the gums and weakened tooth, gum disease is a common mouth problem to some people especially to smokers. Experts advise people who suffer from gum diseases to drink red wine because the polyphenols in it can reduce the presence of free radicals that causes the infection and bacteria proliferation inside the mouth.

Red wine can prevent certain cancers. Because of the wonders brought by resveratrol in red wines, experts believe that regular and moderate consumption can help fight possible cancer cells from proliferating. It can suspend the progression and possibility of dementia especially to old ones.It can serve as blood thinners for people with high blood pressure because it contains blood pressure lowering-substances and compounds.It can provide healthy skin. Thousands of polyphenol can prevent the damages brought by cell oxidation process and results to healthy and young looking skin.

Caloric restriction has also brought about an important discovery as resveratrol stimulates the sirtuin gene in much of the same manner as it would if the body was experiencing caloric restriction. But, the tissues do not suffer any loss of nutrition. This retards ageing and acts to extend life in a number of life forms. 

Scientific data from other studies has shown that animals on a diet where the caloric-intake is greatly reduced have also lived longer lives than animals with normal diets.
