We all know that red wine is tremendously tasty – we love drinking it on its own and can’t resist having it in our sangria. But did you know that red wine contains a healthy, naturally occurring plant chemical called resveratrol?
Here are 8 health benefits of resveratrol:
Promotes hair growth
It reduces the formation of dead cells on your scalp and therefore allows your hair to grow and become thicker.
Fights vision loss
It prevents the growth of blood vessels in your eyes that can make your eye muscles deteriorate and make you lose your vision.
Fights tooth decay
It slows down the growth of bacteria that is responsible for tooth decay.
Keeps your skin healthy
It blocks the growth of acne-causing bacteria and increases skin elasticity, which keeps your skin bright, glowing and healthy.
Not only does it destroy cancer cells by crippling the mitochondria (cells’ main source of energy), but it also protects normal tissues from the detrimental effects of radiation during cancer treatment.
Fights cardiovascular diseases
It can increase the level of good cholesterol (high-density lipoprotein or HDL) and decrease the level of bad cholesterol (low-density lipoprotein or LDL), which stops cholesterol from building up, blocking blood vessels, forming blood clots and causing heart attacks or strokes.
It can stop viruses from multiplying after entering your body, which means that flu and cold symptoms can be managed.
Organic wine actually has 32% more resveratrol than non-organic red wine!
