WINE YOUR WAY TO HAPPINESS
There’s no denying that wine is a magical substance.
It can turn an ordinary dinner into a party, and it’s the perfect way to wind down in a bubble bath after a long day. But while there are plenty of reasons wine makes us happy (and we can all name a few), you might not know that wine, and particularly red wine, also has some remarkable health benefits!
The Magic Ingredient
There have been numerous studies on the health benefits of wine. Many point to a substance known as resveratrol. This naturally occurring compound is produced by plants to protect them against fungi, UV rays and more, and it’s got some great beneficial properties for people too!
Resveratrol makes positive changes in the gut microbiome (the bacteria that live in your digestive system.) Surprisingly, these changes have been linked to better heart health! Red wine increases Omega-3 levels, which is also good for your heart, and it’s been shown to have a positive effect on patients with Type 3 diabetes (a disease that also increases the risk of heart disease.)
