We drink wine because it’s delicious, feels classy and study after study tells us about its impressive health benefits. Visit Teddy Jack’s every week for Winefest Wednesday. If getting together with your friends isn’t enough incentive to join us for Winefest, just think about how good drinking wine is for your wellbeing. It’s basically the same as eating a salad (that’s our story and we’re sticking to it).
- Healthy heart – A healthy heart is often connected to diet and exercise. While this is an important part of cardiovascular well-being, WebMD notes that consuming wine in moderation could also reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and heart attack. The site sources an article in the Annals of Internal Medicine which highlights a study from Sweden of light wine drinkers who cut their risk of premature death by 1/3 and had lower mortality rates from heart disease and cancer.
- Lower cholesterol – It also suggests that wine might also boost the levels of good cholesterol (HDL) which in turn prevents the production of bad cholesterol (LDL).
- Reduce risk of cancer – Wine also might play a part in protecting the body from cancer. It might also slow the growth of cancer cells. The theory is that phenolic compounds, from which wine is comprised, might actually suppress the growth of many cancer cells including breast, prostate and oral.
- Strong bones – Moderate wine drinkers have been shown to have lower levels of osteoporosis and calcium loss as they age. Individuals who consumed moderate amounts of wine actually had greater bone mineral density that non-drinkers or heavy drinkers.
