Wine photo us.

Most people take wine to help them relax. It relaxes the mind and brings smiles to faces. Beyond the mental happiness, drinking alcohol can be good for the physical health when it comes to moderate wine consumption.

Below are some of the importance:


Drinks that contain antioxidants have been recommended for cancer and white wine contains this.

Also, the risk of colon cancer, prostate cancer, and breast cancer can be reduced by drinking a glass of wine. The antioxidants combat nasty free radicals that allow cancer to thrive. Red wine especially is beneficial, as the resveratrol that fights against heart disease also fights against cancerous cells.

Boosts immunity

Drinking a glass of wine daily can give your immune system a boost. Moderate alcohol consumption can ward off infections and keep your immune system in check. However, too much consumption can damage your health.

Stroke risk

According to scientists, moderate consumption of wine and alcohol in general can prevent blood clotting. Wine acts as a natural blood thinner, breaking up any blood clots that could lead to a stroke. This lower risk of blood clotting is more beneficial to females than males. Red wine, in particular, contains phenols that act as a blood thinner.

Heart diseases

The tannins found in red wine contain procyanidins  phenols which neutralize free radicals that have shown to be effective in preventing cardiovascular disease.

Vision loss

According to scientists, resveratrol in red wine may help prevent vision loss caused by out-of-control blood vessel growth in the eye.

You can include a little red or white wine in your daily meal.
