My Favorite Red Wine Benefit!
There are plenty of red wine benefits to be had, if you drink in moderation.
The alcohol itself, and the substances like antioxidants and flavonoids within the wine are where the main healthy components lie.
But really, as the experiments show on mice and cell cultures - you would need a much higher dose of resveratrol than what red wine or other foods have in them, to mimic their results.
That leaves supplements...
Many people are taking resveratrol supplements despite the lack of concrete scientific evidence of how helpful it may be for humans in the long haul.
Yet, I've read numerous reviews of the resveratrol supplement from several sources, and there's a lot of happy people out there who've been taking them for years. Even if it's sometimes a placebo effect.
A Sign of the Times...
Unfortunately, we live in a world of mistrust. Is that certain negative article about resveratrol wrote because the author is affiliated with a large pharmaceutical company?
Are some scientists paid handsomely to fudge or skew data results on a particular study or two? Or to guarantee they continue to receive funds, and cement their future as a research scientist?
Remember, you should always check with your health practitioner before you take any vitamins or supplements.
What's my favorite benefit of drinking red wine?
Pouring and sharing a glass or two of my favorite red, with some people I care about... no study needed!
