Thanks to its unique and rich minerals and antioxidants, wine is protective against cancer, strengthens the immune system, has positive effects on diabetes mellitus, protects against cardiovascular diseases, reduces the risk of heart attacks, lowers bad cholesterol, prevents arteriosclerosis, protects against Alzheimer’s disease, depression and Parkinson’s disease.
Studies on regular wine drinkers show that those who drink two glasses of wine every day have a reduced blood clotting factor. Regular consumption of wine every day can also lead to balancing blood pressure and decreased complaints of high blood pressure. In addition, wine contributes to the regulation of blood circulation and better functioning of the digestive system.
There are many scientific studies showing that strong and natural antioxidants such as resveratrol, anthocyanin and polyphenol in the content of wine can be effective in preventing certain types of cancer and coronary heart diseases. That’s why in many healthy diet recipes that are widely accepted today, one or two glasses of wine a day are at the top of the list.
