That's really interesting! I never thought that drinking wine could be beneficial. Since I'm not 21 yet, I haven't gotten to experience the benefits, but here's an article showing more benefits! http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/red-wine/HB00089

It is very interesting what benefits consuming certain types of food can have for the human body. But it is important to remember however that in moderation it can be good for the body. But it is important to remember if taken to excessive amounts it will most certainly do more harm than good as with many things.

I've always heard that a glass of red wine a day was good for your health but I never knew exactly why or if it was even true. I found it really interesting that this claim has been proven to be true and actually does have some significant ways of helping to improve your health. Red wine might also be good for your heart too! it is shown to be able to prevent heart disease by protecting artery damage and more!
