Apparently red wine is really good for the heart because it contains antioxidants. Obviously it is only beneficial if drunk in moderation!
It is also suggested that alcohol such as red wine may prevent additional heart attacks if you have already suffered from one. Red wine is a particularly rich source of antioxidants flavonoid phenolics, so many studies to uncover a cause for red wine's effects have focused on its phenolic constituents, particularly resveratrol and the flavonoids. Resveratrol, found in grape skins and seeds, increases HDL cholesterol and prevent blood clotting. Flavonoids, on the other hand, exhibit antioxidant properties helping prevent blood clots and plaques formation in arteries.
It can be a relaxing ritual at the end of a stressful day. It tastes great, and it might lengthen your lifespan.
Thanks everyone for answering. I don't know who has marked most of the answers down. I voted them all up.
