Benefits of red wine

  1. 1. Benefits ofred wine
  2. 2. Red wine is found in abundance in Goa. When you go to a restaurant order a bottle. Dont order themost expensive one to impress people. The cost is not the most important thing at all.Even a cheap bottle is good to taste and can be good for you. When I was in Montenegro in Europewhere our ship had gone for dry dock, I used to have glass bottles of red wine that cost just 2 Euros apiece and they tasted good.Here are ten reasons to drink red wine (in moderation of course):1. Red wine decreases the harmful effect of smoking on the endothelium - layers of cells that provide afriction-reducing lining in lymph vessels, blood vessels, and the heart.2. One of the well-known and most studied benefits of red wine is its heart protective effect. Moderateconsumption of red wine on a regular basis may be a preventative against coronary heart disease.Scientists believe the red wine reduces the risk of coronary heart disease by reducing production of lowdensity lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol and boosting high density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol.3. Red wine produces anticlotting, or antithrombotic, action. Light to moderate consumers of wine havelower levels of protein fibrinogen which promotes blood clot formation.4. Red wine may prevent the initiation and progression of atherosclerosis (hardening or "furring" of thearteries). Atherosclerosis starts when blood vessels begin to lose their ability to relax. Both the alcoholand polyphenols in the red wine appear to favorably maintain healthy blood vessels by promoting theformation of nitric oxide (NO), the key chemical relaxing factor that plays an important role in theregulation of vascular tone.5. Two glasses of red wine (250 ml), taken together with a meal, lower post-meal blood pressure inhypertensive persons.6. Red wine intake reduces the risk of kidney stone formation.7. Moderate wine drinking correlates with a lower risk for Alzheimers disease. Researchers found thatresveratrol, a red wine polyphenol, produces neuroprotective effects.8. The lowest mortality rates are amongst those who regularly consume one or two drinks a day.According to studies, teetotalers have higher rates of mortality, while the mortality rate rises rapidlyamongst those who drink three or more drinks a day.9. Moderate consumption of red wine is believed to lower the risk of breast cancer. However, drinkingmore than 1 or 2 alcoholic drinks per day increases the risk of breast cancer in women, so moderation iskey.10. A glass of red wine per day reduces the risk of lung cancer.11. Four or more glasses of red wine per week has been shown to reduce mens overall risk of prostatecancer by 50% and the risk of the most aggressive forms of prostate cancer by 60%.
  3. 3. 12. New research shows that red wine contains melatonin. Melatonin regulates the body clock, sodrinking a glass of red wine before bed may help you sleep. Melatonin is also an anti-oxidant, whichmeans it also has anti-aging and cancer preventative properties.The author manages <a href="">goa servicedapartments</a>, arranges <a href="">cheap goa holidays</a>,and rents <a href="">family rooms in goa</a>.
