Resolve to Drink More Wine in 2015
Statistically, by the end of January, most people give up on their New Year’s Resolutions, but if you resolve to drink more wine in 2015, not only will you be happier, but you’ll be healthier, too. If you live anywhere on California’s Central Coast, drinking more wine will be an easy resolution to keep since there are over 200 wineries in or near Paso Robles. But, if you live elsewhere, no need to worry—your membership with The Paso Robles Wine Club will keep your wine cellar stocked with the best selection of hard to find local wines—and give your health a boost, too.
Here are 3 reasons why you should drink more wine in 2015:
Lower Your Cholesterol: Wine—especially red wine—is full of antioxidants and flavonoids, most notably, Resveratrol, which increases HDL (the good cholesterol), protects the arteries, lowers blood pressure and lowers the risk of heart attack.
Protect Your Smile: The same antioxidants and flavonoids that protect your heart can protect your smile, too. Recent studies have shown that grape seed extracts create a ‘slick’ surface on the teeth, preventing cavity causing bacteria from sticking.
Fight Off the Common Cold: It could be that a glass of wine helps strengthen your immunity by giving you time to pause and enjoy life—friends, laughter and a little relaxation, but scientifically, wine can help you fight off the common cold because it contains several flavonoids that work specifically against nasal viruses.
The New Year is full of possibility, so stop and make a toast to your good health. Raising a glass of wine has many life enhancing properties, but drinking wine can also promote a healthy heart, a cavity free smile and protection from the common cold. Resolve to drink more wine in 2015—and let us help you keep your resolution with your membership to The Paso Robles Wine Club.
