Be Healthy. . .Drink Wine

Is wine good for you? The answer is, "Yes!" There's lots of research providing proof that there really are health benefits from drinking wine.

Flavonoids from the skins and seeks of red grapes are the key to wine being good for you. These flavonoids lower your risk of coronary heart disease by reducing your LDL or bad cholesterol levels. At the same time these flavonoids actually increase your HDL or good cholesterol levels and decrease the likelihood of blood clotting.

Scientists believe that there may be other health benefits from red wine. A recent study discovered that an antioxidant in the skins of red grapes, called resveratrol, may inhibit the growth of tumors in some cancers. It's possible that resveratrol can help treat Alzheimer's and Parkinson's as well and new studies are on the way.

Are some wines better for you than others? Again, the answer is, "Yes!" Researchers at University of California at Davis have concluded that full-bodied dry red wines contain the highest levels of flavonoids and provide the greatest benefits. The number one wine for supplying the most flavonoids is Cabernet Sauvignon with Petit Syrah and Pinot Noir also ranking highly. Sweeter wines and white wines have less flavonoids and are less beneficial.

How much should you drink? Moderation is the key. Women should drink 4 ounces of red wine daily with a meal and men 4-8 ounces.

Pour yourself a glass of red wine and drink to your health. Cheers!

Arbios Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Willam Arbios is a perfectionist. His vineyard is the highest in Sonoma county: a place where grass becomes stunted and oak trees take on a grayish palor. As he says: "Thin soil and scan water threaten the life of my grapes each year. These grapes give my wine the balance of character, finesse, and structure that's born from their constant struggle to live. I can never make much wine from here, but I can make the kind of wine that I have always dreamed of producing." Cherry, red-currant fruit with warmth of new French oak barrels. This Cabernet Sauvignon from California is a perfect gift to buy online! If you are a dry red wine lover, it is the right choice for you! ARB01 ARB97
