Wine Will Put the Spring Back in Your Step
Wine lover or not, just about everyone has heard about the powerful health benefits of wine and on California’s Central Coast and throughout Paso Robles Wine Country, it’s a truth we embrace—with a full glass. So, if you’d like to shake off the winter doldrums and put a spring back into your step, here are a few good reasons to drink more wine:
It will protect your heart: 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.
It will make your dentist 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.
It will keep you healthier: 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.
