In an article published earlier this year, there were at least 10 named health benefits of drinking red wine.
As you likely know by now, having a healthy diet is key when striving to develop superhuman strength. While most people tend to think of wine as something that only harms one’s body, moderate levels of drinking (one 5oz glass for women, and two 5oz glasses for men daily) can actually deliver superhuman benefits.
Explore some of the ways in which red wine, in particular, can be the key to reaching your health goals.
Most people are well aware of one of the most popular advantages of drinking red wine: the antioxidant content. In specific, red varietals contain something known as resveratrol. This substance has been linked to benefits such as decreased joint pain, a protective effect on the brain, lowered blood pressure levels, and the potential to increase one’s lifespan (as reported by Healthline).
All of these health benefits are essential when developing superhuman strength. When looking to match your next meal with wine, consider some of the healthiest varietals. Not only do selections such as Pinot Noir, Malbec, and Petite Sirah work well with a wide range of dishes, but these varietals are also said to contain the highest level of antioxidants.
Reduces the risk of many serious diseases
When disease is present in the body, it is next to impossible to cultivate superhuman strength. This is one area in which red wine could potentially help. A number of studies that have been conducted throughout the last decade have linked moderate red wine consumption with a decreased risk of serious diseases.
One such illness is heart disease. Due to the compounds present, the Mayo Clinic reports that red wine has the potential to “prevent damage to blood vessels, reduces low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol (the “bad” cholesterol) and prevents blood clots.”
Additionally, other studies have found that red wine can prevent illnesses such as colon cancer, breast cancer, lung cancer, dementia, and several others.
Boosts the immune system and gut microbiome
In 2013, The Telegraph reported on a study revealing that a single glass of red wine each day can boost the immune system.
This finding is supported by separate research showing that this same amount of the beverage can promote a healthy gut microbiome.
Since 70% of the immune system is located in the gut, these two findings support one another.
In addition to enhancing your immune system, having a healthy gut can produce health benefits such as proper digestion, improved brain health, and a reduced risk of conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
When compared to white wine, and other alcoholic beverages, it is clear that red wine has superior health benefits.
In addition to reducing the risk of major diseases, it can also enhance your brain, your immune system, and your lifespan. However, it cannot be emphasized enough that these benefits are associated with moderate consumption only.
Once you begin drinking more than what is recommended, you can put yourself at risk of damaging your health. That is why it is important to carefully measure and track what you drink. This will ensure that you reap the maximum amount of health benefits from red wine.
