Why Wine should be your Valentine!
Nowadays many people like to come home, relax, and pour themselves a glass of wine. However, what many people do not realize is that wine actually has many health benefits (of course in moderation).
P.S. if you’re not a wine drinker be sure to read to the end as we have a recommendation for you!
Here are 3 quick fun facts on why you should dine with wine:
1. Keeps your heart healthy
According to a cardiovascular medicine and nutrition professor at the University of Wisconsin–Madison named John Folts, PhD, the antioxidants in red wine, known as polyphenols, help keep blood vessels flowing and reduce the threat of unwanted clotting in the heart. But again drinking too much will harm the heart, as with most things, keep the drinking to a limit.
2. Boost your brain
Try something fun this Valentine’s Day by doing crossword puzzles and brain teasers for an hour then cooling down with a glass of wine.
Resveratrol is a phytonutrient and antioxidant that naturally occurs in grapes and red wine. Human clinical studies have shown that resveratrol supports healthy metabolism, normal insulin sensitivity, and optimal blood flow – all of which may have brain benefits.*
Marambaud, PhD, a senior research scientist at New York's Litwin-Zucker Research Center for the Study of Alzheimer's Disease and Memory Disorders found that resveratrol may also be the key to keeping your memory sharp.*
So grab a puzzle, a glass of red wine, and get cracking!
3. Spice up your dinner
Wine is not limited to being poured into a glass but also pouring into your cooking pot instead! There are many fun recipes to enjoy this Valentine’s Day (or any day). Many people use wine in their dinners, sauces, etc. and still gain its benefits! Grab a friend and be sure to look into some fun DYI ways of including wine into your diet!
Quick tip: if wine isn’t your thing, you can also take a resveratrol supplement to reap the same benefits!
