Unlike the perfect grow lights setup you have when growing indoor cannabis, white wine isn’t as perfect as you think it is. Like most food and drink, consuming too much wine can cause trouble. But it has health benefits too! Let’s see what white wine can give us.
Researchers from the Ankara University found that white wine contains antioxidants. Although red grape juice and red wine contained higher levels of antioxidants, the difference, as well as the defense of cells from oxidation, wasn’t considerably greater than white wine’s. Antioxidants slow aging effects by decreasing the damage caused by free radicals. They also protect eye vision and lessen the effects of aging on the skin.
Healthy lung tissues
Studies have shown that white wine contributes to the good health of lung tissues—one thing red wine doesn’t give. In 2002, Buffalo School of Medicine researchers found that drinking white wine moderately can improve lung health. It was then proven to be effective in preventing the development of lung disease. Some studies also show that it can improve cardiovascular health.
Prevention of breast cancer
White wine has also been effective in preventing breast cancer. In 2010, researchers from the University of Wisconsin discovered that white wine could protect cells from breast cancer just as red wine could.
Apart from its beneficial antioxidants, white wine also contains fluoride, which is great for the teeth; potassium, which strengthens the bones; and phosphorus, which improves digestion. It also gives energy to the body (around 80-100 calories).
However, even though there are benefits such as these, there are still cons behind white wine consumption.
White wines are the most acidic wines, which means drinking too much could worsen your teeth.
Compared to red wines, they have higher sugar content.
Consuming too much of white wine can cause liver disease because white wine is still alcohol in itself.
Basically, if you want to drink white wine, do so moderately; otherwise, you’ll end up acquiring its disadvantages.
