A glass of wine a day, keeps the doctor away!

You read it right class! 

It has been proven that drinking ONE glass of RED WINE a day offer heart-healthy benefits.

The key ingredient in the wine is the resveratrol which is found in the skin of grapes and is shown to be a potent biological agent that may offer protection against cardiovascular disease, cancer, type 2 diabetes and neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer's disease.

Researchers also think that resveratrol might decrease obesity by preventing immature fat cells from fully maturing!

Other things that you can find resveratrol in is cocoa powder, baking chocolate, and dark chocolate!

So, i dont know about you... but screw apples! I'll drink wine and eat chocolate to keep the doctors away!

until next time!!  :)

I am with you on the wine and chocolate consumption over the apple! I think it is really great to know that all of these different drinks and foods can actually help us with our health. I know a couple other people posted on this topic, but have you seen any other type of wine that could also help us in the long run or is it just red wine that has that key ingredient? I also found it interesting that researchers have found that resveratrol might be able to decrease obesity, something that America and many other countries have a problem with. It would be interesting to see if by finding this fact of the health benefits of a glass of red wine to be true, if some parents would let their underage children have a little glass with them at dinner or even on certain family occasions.
