Antioxidants that are found in this particular type of wine fight free radicals that can be damaging. But it is all about moderation.
There are many reasons why you should make sure you are not drinking too much alcohol, however, having a glass of wine each day may not be that big guilty pleasure you believe it is. For some people, it might be a good thing to drink a glass of red wine, which could be quite beneficial with its anti-aging effects.
“The antioxidants that are in red wine is the mechanism for the anti-aging benefits,” Richard Baxter explained. “Antioxidants collect damaging free radicals that have a role in age-related diseases and aging.” In fact, Dr. Baxter also said: “Consuming a glass of red wine every day is one of the most important things that you could do other than not smoking cigarettes, when it comes to anti-aging.”
“Although creams and injections are the most well known anti-aging weapons, I am here to let you know red wine is the real deal,” said Nataly Komova. “A glass of red wine delivers antioxidants including flavonoid, resveratrol and tannin, into our bodies, correcting the elastic fibers and collagen deficit.”
Why is that a good thing? “Sufficient elastic fibers and collagen can help fight age-related diseases, which in turn allow you to look more youthful,” says Komova.
While that is already astonishing, Rebecca Schilling, also said, “Red wine is suggested in popular science-based diets such as the Mediterranean diet and the Mind diet” due to the fact that it “contains a high polyphenol content, which produces the desired anti-inflammatory effects we seek for hindering the aging process.”
Beyond that, Dr. Rashmi Byakodi, said that research has revealed “resveratrol that is present in red wine helps to prevent aging-related decline in heart function, including inflammatory response and cholesterol levels.” Also, according to additional research, “resveratrol at a certain range of concentration, inhibits the apoptotic cell death, thereby giving protection from various diseases.”
However, Schilling notes that there isn’t enough evidence to say that non-drinkers should pick up the habit of drinking a glass of red wine each day. If you happen to already drink wine, Schilling stresses, “Moderation is the key. Overconsumption of alcoholic beverages has the opposite effect you are searching for when it comes to anti-aging. My suggestion would be to keep it to one glass of red wine at supper time.”
