5 Reasons Why Wine is Healthy

We know that wine makes life much more fun and entertaining, but wine isn't just for a good time anymore! There are always health benefits being discovered about this fabulous beverage, and we always knew that wine would prove to be the best! Check out a few of these great reasons to keep the glass full and enjoy your wine to the very last drop.

Wine is Heart Healthy

A glass of red wine a day has been considered a great way to help your heart, but new research has linked moderate alcohol consumption in general to help your blood pressure. That would include white wine and other beverages. This benefit is caused by the plant antioxidant called flavanoids that are present in the skins of grapes.

It Can Affect Your Lifespan

Perhaps this is caused by the relaxation that alcohol can provide, but studies have proven that moderate alcohol consumption can lead to a longer life. As an added bonus, people who dink in moderation also tend to have other healthy behaviors, like healthy diets, or regular exercise. So pair your next glass of Missouri wine with a healthy meal and enjoy the benefits!

Your Waistline May Thank You

Wine does have calories, so like any other healthy food or drink, you don't want to go overboard. Studies have proven, however, that people who drink wine in moderation are less likely to be obese, or suffer from obesity related diseases - such as diabetes. So enjoy your glass of wine, and if you're counting calories, just measure your portion before putting it in the glass.

It Sharpens Your Mind

This may seem like the opposite of what alcohol does, but people who drink alcohol regularly are at a lower risk of developing Alzheimer's and cognitive decline. Wine contains flavanols, and those protect your body's cells. Your cells support healthy blood vessels, which is a key physiological benefit. It improves blood flow to your brain and also prevents harmful plaque from developing.

Raise a Glass to Raise Your Spirits

Studies have proven that moderate alcohol intake can improve your mood. A study done in 2014 stated that people who had a glass of wine in an uncomfortable environment experience the same level of mood improvement as people who didn't drink any wine in a pleasant environment. So when you're down, drink up!
