It can be very beneficial so we will be exploring some of the ways red wine can actually help you and your body.

Heart Happy

Red wine benefits your heart because of the effects of restervol it can aide against heart disease. It isn't necessarily any better than beer or other types of alcohol ,but if you are going to partake in alcohol why not partake in red wine and get the extra heart boost as well as a buzz. Also, red wine can lower your blood pressure and increase you red blood count. Also, research shows that red wine boost your immune system considering it is made from dark berries.

Whatever the reason, please drink responsibly Never try and drink and drive or drink while your pregnant Drinking isn't for everyone and alcohol can effect the body in different ways for different people. Take note of the alcohol content at the bottom of the bottle. Also take note of the year that the wine was made. The year on the bottle represents the year that the wine was bottled,so the older the better. If the wine bottle does not have a year, it means the wine was made with grapes from different years.
