Drink Wine, Live Longer

Red Wine

True or false?  Studies have been trying to decide whether or not drinking wine can be considered a healthy habit. No final word yet.

Some studies have showed that wines, particularly red wines, are a great source of resveratrol, an antioxidant found in the skin of red grapes.

Resveratrol has been linked to longevity, reducing heart disease and cancer prevention. French people suffers low incidence of coronary heart disease, despite a diet rich in fats. The secret: drinking red wine.

The consumption of red wine decreases the incidence of cardiac diseases and promotes longevity. It may also boost good cholesterol and lower bad cholesterol because of its high antioxidants.

The term French Paradox has been related to this controversial subject since Dr. Serge Renaud, a scientist from the University of Bordeaux in France, named the phenomenon in 1992.

But some other studies have proved that drinking wine is not as healthy as people may think. The problem: alcohol.

Drinking wine means adding alcohol to your system, or increasing your intake if you already drink on a regular basis. Alcohol may increase triglycerides, and could result in weight gain and liver problems.

Is the French Paradox true? Well, it’s really hard to say if it’s just a coincidence or something we should believe due to the lack of better evidences. The question will remain, at least until better studies become available.

Red wine isn’t bad for you if you drink it with moderation. It isn’t a health food, as some people wanted to label, but it may provide surprising benefits to your diet.
