What Red Wine Can Give You

Had a long day? Perhaps you can get that bottle of red wine from your kitchen cabinet you’ve been safekeeping all along and take a sip! Red wine, as you probably already know, has numerous health benefits to offer. But before that, check out for your kitchen cabinet needs.

Let’s move on to what red wine can give you.


According to a study conducted by the scientists of the University of Barcelone, phenols in red wine give drinkers antioxidants. Their antioxidants are lower or equal to the antioxidants found in white wine.

A Healthy Heart

Red wine contains tannins, and these tannins have procyanidins. These procyanidins are phenols responsible for neutralizing free radicals and are effective in the prevention of cardiovascular illness.

Researchers from the Israel Institute of Technology found that red wine also enhances a drinker’s blood vessel cell health, which improves blood flow. When the flow of blood is better, the heart is healthier, and there will be smaller chances of acquiring heart diseases.

A Slimmer Bod

According to the study published in the Journal of Biological Chemistry, piceatannol hinders the development of fat cells. It can do so by binding to the insulin receptors of fat cells and obstructing the pathways needed for these immature fat cells to grow and mature. In case you didn’t know, piceatannol is a chemical compound which human bodies convert from resveratrol. And resveratrol is a polyphenol compound found in red wine, known for having antioxidant properties.

Lower Blood Sugar Levels

Red wine involves the skin of grapes, hence the color. These grape skins, an excellent source of resveratrol, help people with diabetes in the regulation of their blood sugar as per a study published in the Nutrition Journal. Those who took resveratrol supplements had remarkable decreases in their total cholesterol as well as systolic blood pressure. Their glucose levels were also smaller than those who didn’t take 250mg resveratrol pills once a day for three months. It is then safe to say that resveratrol can help trigger insulin secretion or activate a protein which aids in glucose regulation and insulin sensitivity.

Long Life

According to the researchers at Harvard Medical School, resveratrol activates a protein (as mentioned earlier) that serves as an anti-aging instrument. If you drink red wine, your overall health will increase, promoting long life. And c’mon, who doesn’t want to live long?
