Red Wine Health Benefits

Every true wine connoisseur knows that a glass of red wine can do wonders for your health and well-being as its benefits have proven to be nothing but exceptional! After all, we all know how a good blend of red makes us feel after a hectic day. However, if this is your first time hearing about this, prepare to be amazed by the remarkable benefits of red wine, putting a special spotlight on the assortment of the finest Tikves wines, a treasure coming deep from Macedonia’s vineyards.

Benefits of Red Wine

  1. Rich In Antioxidants

Firstly, red wine boasts a handful of antioxidants, particularly resveratrol, flavonoids, and tannins. You’ve probably heard most of these terms before as they’re used in wine production, but they do a lot more than just provide a great taste. Namely, these compounds fight oxidative stress caused by free radicals, which further lead to a multitude of chronic diseases. With that in mind, consuming Tikves Barovo Red can greatly contribute to this protective effect.

  1. Cholesterol Management

Research has shown that red wine intake can positively affect cholesterol levels by elevating HDL cholesterol, more commonly known as the “good cholesterol. This is mainly due to saponins which are found in red wines, which also contribute to improved cardiovascular health.

  1. Keeps Your Heart Healthy

Although it may come as a surprise, the connection between red wine and heart health is very well-documented. The polyphenols found in red wine, along with resveratrol, have been shown to prevent various kinds of cardiovascular diseases. In other words, these compounds contribute to improving the health of blood vessels, thus further reducing inflammation. With that in mind, a moderate intake of red wines such as T’ga za Jug or Alexandria Cuvee can be part of your healthy lifestyle, making you one step closer to exceptional heart health!

  1. Reduces Cancer Risk

While this is generally new research, some studies show that red wine may also have a protective effect against various kinds of cancer, especially colon and breast cancer. The aforementioned antioxidants found in red wine are believed to play a role in hindering the production of cancer cells.

  1. Regulates Blood Sugar

Furthermore, the resveratrol in red wine has also been shown to improve insulin sensitivity, which is especially important in regulating blood sugar levels. This is especially useful in preventing type 2 diabetes, making red wine a potential ally in maintaining blood sugar levels. However, it’s essential to be careful with the choice of wine. Namely, wines with high sugar content can contribute to an effect far from the one you desire, meaning that those sweet dessert wines should only be kept for special occasions.

  1. Keeps Memory Sharp

Quite the shocker, isn’t it? We are all well aware that too many glasses of wine can easily make us forget all sorts of things (hey, we’ve all been wine-drunk at least once in our lives!) but that’s not the case if we practice moderation. For one, studies have suggested that compounds found in red wine can have a positive impact on brain health and may even slow down cognitive deterioration and prevent diseases such as Alzheimer’s. Knowing this, whenever you have a difficult task in front of you or need to keep your memory sharp, know that red wine can be of great help! Just as long as you’re doing it moderately!

  1. Gets Rid Of Common Colds

Once the weather starts changing - and we all know how common this is in the UK - most of us are prone to catching the common cold. Naturally, the usual advice we get is to rest and drink plenty of fluids, usually in the form of teas or vitamin-packed beverages. But, what you might not know is that a glass of red wine can positively combat the effects of the common cold! This is yet again due to the antioxidants in red wine, particularly flavonoids, thanks to their ability to enhance the immune system to battle all sorts of viruses. And since spring is right around the corner and allergy and flu season is upon us, you might want to stock up on Tikves red wines to maintain your health in tip-top shape!

  1. Helps With Weight Loss

Once you decide to embark on a weight loss journey, you’re typically advised to stray away from nutrient-poor foods and all sorts of beverages, especially alcohol as it greatly contributes to putting on those extra pounds you so desperately want to lose. Luckily, this doesn't apply to red wine! Contrary to popular belief, drinking red wine moderately has been linked to a lower risk of obesity and may even help with reaching your desired weight goals. This is because of piceatannol, a compound derived from resveratrol, which can delay the growth of fat cells. So, in addition to regular exercise and a clean and balanced diet, an occasional glass of wine won’t present itself as a hurdle in your journey!

  1. Elevates Your Mood

This is a pretty obvious red wine benefit, but it must be stated! We all have our gloomy days, and sometimes, they put you in such a bad mood that you practically don’t have the motivation to do anything. Once the blues start coming your way, wash them out with a tantalizing red! Enjoying a blend can have a rather positive effect on your mental health, elevating your mood in what seems to be a blink of an eye. It can provide a sense of relaxation as it eases your muscles and calms down your nervous system. So, the next time you’re having a bad day, prepare a bath, cozy up by the TV, or wrap yourself in the comfiest blanket by your current read with a glass of red wine in hand. Don’t forget to give yourself some self-care!

  1. Improves Your Digestive System

Finally, red wine has been also associated with improving not only your heart, brain, and mood, but your digestive system as well. The polyphenols found in red wine help balance your gut microbiome and promote the growth of beneficial bacteria. As you may know, having a healthy gut is pivotal for leading a healthy lifestyle, so don’t save yourself from the experience of tasting a tantalizing blend of red on occasion!

As you can see the benefits of red wine are truly great - as long as they’re enjoyed in moderation. Be it for your heart or mental health, the antioxidants found in red wine will keep your well-being in optimal condition. With that in mind, consider Tikves red wines, with our rich history and second-to-none quality, to offer a sensational way to enjoy said benefits.
