I’m in the mood for a little glass of merlot! Why do you ask? Because when wine is drank in moderation it is actually good for us! A 5 ounce glass of wine daily can reduce your risk of heart disease by increasing your HDL cholesterol (good cholesterol) and lowering your LDL cholesterol (bad cholesterol). Wine also has one of the earth’s most important natural phenols called resveratrol. Phenols fight infections by bacteria and fungus, which help protect your immune system and fight off invaders. Lastly wine contains catechins which protect our artery walls. Now that’s a good reason to drink up!
To our long and great health!
