Don’t we all love a well-toned skin? The kind they use in lotion commercials?
Or better still, good, healthy teeth – the kind that a toothpaste Ad would pay a fortune for?
If your answer is “YES”, or “YES Of COURSE!” then you are in the right place!
We uncovered some benefits of drinking red wine that they never get to advertise!
Male or female, Red Wine is not just your normal evening drink, and consuming 1-2 glasses on a daily basis may just prove to you why.
Below are some legitimate reasons to open a bottle more often:
1. Red Wine is good for the Skin
Prescription: A glass or two of red wine for a few days, the right contacts, and voila! You are ready for your first TV Commercial!
Some of the antioxidants present in red wine are known to slow down the ageing process as well as reduce facial wrinkles, leading to that glowing skin that we all desire.
2. Prevents Tooth Decay
“Number one toothpaste brand recommended by dentists worldwide.”
You may be familiar with that tagline from most toothpaste commercials. And while it may not be of much help when shopping for the right toothpaste, we found you an alternative. At least when it comes to tooth decay.
Red wine is known to harden the enamel, which in turn prevents the dreaded tooth decay and bacteria growth inside the mouth. The polyphenols present in red wine also help in reducing gum inflammation and other gum related diseases.
Note: Brushing your teeth twice a day is still a thing.
3. Good for the Brain
Ever wondered why brainstorm sessions with the team at happy hour often provide such fantastic results?
Studies have shown that a few glasses of wine help relax the brain, allowing one to think more clearly and creatively.
The resveratrol antioxidant present in red wine also helps in boosting one’s memory and protects from memory-related diseases.
4. Sex Drive
“So how exactly does drinking red wine increase one’s sex drive?” Glad you asked!
Red wine is known to increase the flow of blood to women’s erogenous zones, hence leading to increased levels of sexual desire.
When it comes to men, this fact is not far from the truth. Apart from increasing blood flow to the sacred areas, red wine also increases testosterone levels in the blood – an essential hormone in a man’s sexual appetite.
5. Weight Loss
On top of the normal gym and healthy diet regimen, adding red wine to the mix often leads to more efficient results in one’s weight loss program. Some of the ingredients of red wine aid in burning down excess fats, and preventing their growth thereof.
The ellagic acid present in grapes used in making red wine is known to slow down the growth of existing fat cells and the formation of new ones, hence boosting the metabolism of fatty acids and in liver cells.
6. Unstuffs the Nose
Red wine almost always makes one immune to colds. Well, kind of. Anyone who does not consume red wine regularly is perhaps familiar with that disgusting feeling of having a stuffed nose whenever the flu surfaces.
But for red wine drinkers, a stuffed nose is a new vocabulary.
The antioxidant properties present in flavonoids helps prevent the body from succumbing to illnesses, one of them being colds and stuffed noses.
7. Fountain of Youth
The search for the ever elusive fountain of youth may just end with a glass of red wine. Or two. Studies have shown that red wine helps elongate one’s life to some extent. For one, it is known to protect from diseases such as dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, and osteoporosis – a disease known to weaken the body with the advancement of age.
8. Protects the Heart
The resveratrol, an antioxidant compound present in red wine, helps reduce the accumulation of saturated fats in the arteries, which often constitute to circulation difficulties. This compound also aids in raising good cholesterol, and the formation of blood clots.
Also present in red wine are the flavonoids and saponins which help prevent cardiovascular diseases.
