Is red or white wine better for your health?
We often hear that drinking a glass of wine per meal is good for your health. But, is this true?
Wine is a beverage that consists mainly of water and alcohol, carbohydrates, minerals, trace elements and vitamins.
Red wine has health benefits that white or rosé wine do not have. We often talk about the antioxidants that contribute to the prevention of certain cardiovascular diseases.
Wine provides 7 calories per gram of alcohol. This is only an average as this rate can vary depending on the amount of sugar in the wine.
A moderate consumption of red wine, would lengthen the life span and protect the cardiovascular system. These benefits are unfortunately questioned by some. It is the resveratrol, a "miracle" molecule found naturally in red wine and chocolate that protects the cardiovascular system.
According to the WHO experts, consuming 2 to 3 glasses of wine per day would not have any health risks. On the other hand, if we exceed this limit, the risk increases, because alcohol has an influence on the appearance of many diseases such as cancer, as well as disorders of the nervous system and the digestive system.
Wine has antioxidant, vasodilator and antiaggregant effects. It is undeniable that wine is good for your health, provided that it is consumed in moderation. Excessive consumption is dangerous for your health.
