While alcohol generally gets a bad rap, but some research has found that there are some benefits to drinking wine, particularly red wine. Red wine, which is made from crushing dark grapes, is said to contain a higher level of resveratrol, which is a natural antioxidant found in the skin of the grape. Red wine has also been linked to anti-inflammatories and reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease, when enjoyed in moderation. However, health officials observe that there is still research needed to fully substantiate the link between red wine and health, meaning you may want to hold off on that additional glass in the name of your health, as it may turn out it does more harm than good.
For more information on consuming alcohol responsibly, refer to the government guidelines.
