Wine is also thought to promote longevity and protect against heart disease and inflammation. While all glasses contain these nutrients, red wine gives you the most pack for your punch.

Doctor's orders: The CDC recommends a maximum of one glass of wine for females and two for men a day. A glass of wine is 5 ounces (oz) of 12% alcohol by volume.

What are antioxidants?

Antioxidants are molecules that fight free radicals in your body. They neutralize free radicals by sharing some of their electrons. This breaks the chain reaction that can affect the health of cells in the body. Antioxidants are more compact in wine tannins, the sediment that piles at the bottom of a bottle.

What are free radicals?

Free radicals are compounds that can cause harm if their levels accumulate too much in our body. Free radicals are derived either from normal essential metabolic processes in the human body or from external sources such as exposure to X-rays, ozone, cigarette smoking, air pollutants, and industrial chemicals. 

Why are antioxidants good for you?

Antioxidants reduce oxidative stress in the body. Oxidative stress has clear links to many diseases, including cancers and heart disease. Some other benefits of wine include:

  • Improving gut health

How does wine have antioxidants?

Antioxidants are naturally occurring in fruits, nuts, and vegetables. Dark berries, like grapes and blueberries, are best known for its antioxidants.

What is resveratrol?

Resveratrol is part of a group of nutrient compounds called polyphenols. They're similar to antioxidants, protecting the body against damage.
