    What are the health benefits of drinking wine?

    I have heard that it might be healthy for your heart. Anybody know?

    It depends on what kind of wine you are talking about. White wine..little to none.

    Red wine contains RESVRERETROL (not sure if I spelled that correctly), which has been shown to slow aging, but you would have to drink about 1000 glasses a day to get enough to truly stop aging, yet that would kill your liver. There are companies working to isolate and sell just that part.

    Red wine also contains antioxidants that are good for your overall health. Further, it thins your blood, which is good for your heart.

    Beware, though, drinking red wine daily stains your teeth a pretty nasty grey color. Also, only one or two glasses a day is recommended.

    Finally, it can reduce stress levels for obvious reasons and induce sleepiness. That pretty much sums it up!

    Red wine also has lycopene which is an anti-oxidant;it cleanses the body of free radicals,that is,the toxins from chemicals and processed foods.......taken in moderation ,of coursel - 1 or 2 glasses per day.
    It,I understand ,is more beneficial when used in cooking,as lycopene is more effective in cooked foods,and also the alcohol is burnt off.

    I've just read an article which advises that red wine can also stop you getting fat. 

    Apparently the resveratrol in the wine is converted to piceatannol in our bodies and this is able to prevent immature fat cells from developing and growing.

    People who drink wine have lower levels of arterial plaque and less incidence of cardiovascular disease. The stuff cuts grease. It has other benefits as well, especially the red half of it.

    I think a glass of wine ought to count as one of your daily servings of fruit, too. After all, it's fruit juice.
