You probably clicked on this article because you thought, “yes! There are benefits for wine! Such great news!” But I do have to start off this piece with some bad news first. Because of changes in the weather, grapes in the world’s leading wine producing countries (aka Italy, Spain and France) are suffering, which means one thing…
WE ARE GOING TO EXPERIENCE A WINE SHORTAGE! I know, cry with me people!
So, you’re going to need to stock up and start drinking. But there are plenty of benefits from wine:
- Wine is full of antioxidants thanks to the skin on grapes. They help protect our cells against harmful effects of free radicals (whatever that means).
2. Wine is basically like drinking fruit. Nutritionists say you’re supposed to eat 4-5 servings a day, and when you drink a lot of wine, you still get that serving. It counts. So I’m going to keep drinking.
11. Wine is great for your heart! It contains resveratrol, which is one of the key ingredients in red wine, which helps keep our hearts healthy by preventing damage to blood vessels and blood clots. It also makes our hearts happy, so it’s very beneficial.
12. Wine can help you live longer! Studies have found that drinking low or moderate helpings of wine last longer than those who drink low or moderate than those who drink liquor live longer. Betty White was right y’all!
If you need any other reasons to drink aside from a wine shortage, the healthy benefits and the fact you love it. Well grab yourself a glass and start counting all the reasons why you need to have a glass! At least you know you’re being healthy!
