Those who enjoy Wine find it can be very relaxing and some studies have shown many health benefits when consumed in moderation. The safe drinking amounts is one glass of wine a day for women and two drinks per day for men.
The choice to drink wine or any alcohol is your own and depending on your overall health, and other medical conditions or medications you may have to take, and your ability to limit your consumption to just one drink. Remember that any potential benefits are dose-dependent, and more than one to two drinks per day can have detrimental effects on health.
Wine is very rich in antioxidants, which may help to protect the lining of blood vessels in the body and the heart. The most common of these antioxidants is resveratrol, which comes from the grape skin and seeds.
Resveratrol’s antioxidant properties have been found to repair cells and reduce inflammation, which can decrease atherosclerosis and fatty deposits, which are known risk factors for heart disease and stroke. A cautionary note, however: studies done on resveratrol have been conducted mainly on animals, and further studies need to understand the true benefit in humans fully.
Although there are these may seem great for your overall health, the other issue becomes, drinking too much, and that counters the effects. To much Wine can increase the risk of high blood pressure, causing liver damage, heart disease, obesity, and some cancers, and can increase the risk of impaired driving and accidents. Wine can also cause dangerous issues with commonly used medications.
