Hack Your Life: Health benefits of white wine
Not all wine is created equal. Some, like white wine, stand above the rest. Few people know that white wine actually has several health benefits. As if you needed more reasons to drink wine, continue reading and now you will.
It protects your heart
Don’t let red wine take all the glory, new studies show that white wine is just as healthy for your heart. The secret? It’s all in the grapes. Grapes’ skin is high in antioxidants and nutrients and now we know that the pulp or core is too! Drinking two glasses of white wine per day can limit your risk of heart disease by 25%.
It helps with weight loss
White wine has a little bit of magic in it- epicatechin, quercetin, and resveratrol. All of these magic ingredients can help you trim that waistline. One or two glasses a day and you’re good to go. Just keep in mind it isn’t a cure for all. Don’t overindulge too much or you won’t see the results you expect.
It prevents disease
If you could more easily prevent cancer wouldn’t you? Especially bowel cancer. The flavinoods which contain antioxidants in white wine help prevent certain types of cancer, specifically bowel cancer.in addition, white wine protects cells from breast cancer just as easily as red wine does. And let’s not foget the contribution of white wine to the prevention of Alzheimer’s disease. Drink up!
It keeps lungs healthy
Yet another reason to drink more wine. Studies indicate that white wine drinkers can breathe easy because white wine contributes to better lung function. This is because the nutrients in white wine protect lung tissue and help them perform better. It gets better- white wine also prevents the development of “free radicals” that can speicifically cause lung damage.
It lessens your hangover
Unfortunately you cant just drink white wine once you have a hangover and expect results, but if you drink white wine, compared to red wine and other alcohols, you’ll have less of a hangover. This is due to the congeners, a chemical byproduct used for alcohol’s taste, aroma, and color, but that also contributes to your hangover. At least it will be a little bit better when you drink white wine.
