Is red wine good for you and is red wine fattening? Yes and No

1) Resveratrol
The skin of grapes are packed with the antioxidant resveratrol which benefits:
⁃ Eye sight
⁃ Fights cancer
⁃ Heart and brain protection
⁃ Anti-aging
⁃ Lowers cholesterol and blood pressure

2) Fattening
Red wine is not fattening if consumed in small amounts due to unique antioxidants and phytonutrients that help burn body fat.

3) Alcohol
A small amount of alcohol stimulates liver detox by breaking down bile
⁃ Suggested amount: 1/2 glass or less

Over consuming (more than one glass in a sitting or a few glasses a week) becomes toxic to the liver
which will negate the health benefits and cause long term health issues such as:
⁃ Slows down liver detox
⁃ Increases toxicity
⁃ Increases fat storage
⁃ Potential heart issues

    Yes cyanide is good for you in small amounts…. but I’m still drinking 2-4 glasses of wine in one sitting or not drinking at all. Half a glass? Ridiculous.

    Strange thing is, many people are aware of the “dirty dozen” which is the top fruits and vegetables that are sprayed the most with pesticides and which preferably should be bought organic. Grapes are one of those that are heavily sprayed with pesticides so I wonder just how concentrated those pesticides are in red (I prefer red) wine? I remember as a naive teenager sitting in front of the tv with a bag of red grapes and thinking that those grapes smelled like roach spray. Years later I realized since I didn’t wash them first they probably were so full of pesticides that I really could smell it. The smell was so strong I never forgot it.

    *Many of those same health benefits can be found in “new wine”…non alcoholic wine or grape juice.*

    One healthy glass will do you if your tolerance is low because you don’t over-drink. It’s nice to stay minimal and be a cheap drunk ? two glasses is an indulgence. Three glasses, is too much but… things in moderation (even moderation?)
