Did you know that there’s a special holiday set aside for drinking wine? While some people seem to celebrate this holiday every day of the year, National Drink Wine Day, on February 18th, is actually meant to educate others on the benefits of wine and highlight how wine has influenced history, religion, and even relationships.
Drinking wine in moderation has been shown to lower your risk of liver disease, type II diabetes, heart attack, stroke, and some cancers, including breast, colon, and prostate cancer. While both red and white wine can be beneficial, red varieties have more antioxidants and are thought to be the healthiest.
What If I Don’t Like Wine?
But, if you’re not a fan of the taste of wine, or you want to enjoy the benefits of wine without the potential headache or hangover, you might prefer to avoid consuming any alcohol. Further, even though there are some health benefits from drinking wine, they can be outweighed by the negatives, including:
Red wine’s health “secret” is that it contains resveratrol, an antioxidant that is known for a variety of health benefits, including boosting heart health and slowing the aging process. Before you down that glass of wine, however, consider this: The Linus Pauling Institute found that the average resveratrol supplement contains about 50 to 500 times more resveratrol than a glass of red wine. So, if you were hoping to drink your way to heart health, we’re sorry to burst your bubble!
However, not all resveratrol supplements are created equal. The biggest problem with most resveratrol supplements is that they don’t stay in the bloodstream very long, which greatly limits the benefits.
Quality of Life’s Resveratrol-SRTM, on the other hand, contains a patented Microactive® Resveratrol that is 2.5x more bioavailable and stays in your bloodstream for 12 hours. This allows you to get the maximum benefit. *
What Exactly is Resveratrol?
Resveratrol is found in a variety of foods, including dark chocolate, berries, peanuts, pistachios, grapes, and yes, red wine. It’s classified as a polyphenol, which is an antioxidant that, as the name suggests, prevents oxidation in our cells. Polyphenols are believed to improve digestion, slow the aging process, discourage weight gain, and stave off diabetes, neurodegenerative disease, and cardiovascular disease.
