We usually drink wine when we celebrate the end of a long working week or other special occasions. Many of you probably don’t know that there is a number of health benefits associated with drinking.

Research in this field has shown that wine reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease and heart attacks. Red wine is a very good source of antioxidants. This increases the level of good cholesterol, known as HDL, and gets rid of the bad ones. This prevents arteries from clogging, and so prevents heart disease.

Prevents cancer

This was a report submitted by the scientists of University of Crete, Greece, which shows that wine makes the growth of prostrate and breast cancer slow. It also prevents oral cancer. French researchers have found out that there is an antioxidant present in the wine known as resveratrol. This slows down the growth of liver cancer cells.

Keeps bones strong

If you drink wine in limited amount then it reduces the risk of osteoporosis. It increases the bone material density in both men and women. A study has shown that drinking 11 to 29 grams of alcohol a day is same as drinking 1 to 3 glasses of wines. So, drinking wine in moderate amount can make your bones strong.

These are some very good reasons to drink wine. But you must be careful that you are drinking it in moderate amounts.
