Today some people want to drink a glass of wine after hard day at work just to relax. But what they do not know is that there are some benefits that can improve the overall health. Some of those benefits are preventing loss of bone density, improving the cardiovascular health and speeding up the process of weight loss.
Reasons why you should drink glass of wine
1. As we said it increases bone density. According to studies, women that drink glass of wine have better bone density when compared to the women that do not drink wine. Wine can help in increasing the hormone estrogen in women and that is what protects your bones from damage.
2. It is effective in improving your blood sugar levels. If you are going through premenopausal stage then you should drink glass of wine every night because that way you are going to reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes. There is not actual proof, but according to experts in this topic, wine is effective in this case because of the fact that it can reduce person’s resistance to insulin.
3. As we mentioned another good reason why you should drink wine is that it can help you to lose weight. If you are trying to lose weight then you should drink wine because wine will increase the amount of burned calories and that of course will help you to lose more weight. People that drink wine have lower fats than the ones that do not drink wine.
4. Wine is also effective in boosting the good cholesterol in your body. The good cholesterol is needed to clear up the LDL cholesterol (bad cholesterol) from the organism and that way the risk of clogged arteries that can be the reason for many heart problems is reduced.
5. Wine can increase antioxidants. In wine there are many antioxidants such as flavonoids, resveratrol and polyphenols and all of them can keep your cells and tissues protected from damage and that way the risk of health problems such as cancer and heart diseases is significantly reduced. Wine that has higher amounts of all these antioxidants is the red wine.
6. Your risk of stroke will be reduced with a glass of wine. Drinking one to two glasses of wine can reduce the risk of stroke by unbelievable 20% and this is according to American Heart Association. When you do not consume excessive amounts of wine, you can as well prevent appearance of stroke in the future.
But as everything else, wine is beneficial for your health only if you drink it in moderate amounts. That is why now if you know that wine can be beneficial for you, you should not drink excessive amounts of it. If you are going to drink more than the allowed amounts of wine, you might be at some health risk, which means wine can turn to be harmful for you that way instead of being beneficial.
It is important to mention that wine is not going well if you are on some medications. You should avoid not only wine, but any kind of alcohol if you are on some medications because alcohol and those medications are not working together. You should especially avoid wine if you are on painkillers, antidepressants or sedatives. You are going to be at increased risk of breast cancer if you drink more than the allowed wine amount. That is why you should be careful. That is why make sure you are drinking 1 to 2 glasses each day, especially if you want to have the benefits from the wine.
