It’s wine o’clock! Apakah kamu percaya bahwa anggur merah memiliki berbagai manfaat untuk kesehatan tubuhmu? Menurut ahli kesehatan Gabby Geerts, minuman ini mengandung antioksidan, khususnya polyphenol yang telah dibuktikan bisa menyehatkan jantung dan tekanan darah.
But remember, to get good benefits from red wine, you need to pay attention to the dose and not drink wine excessively! Here are the unique benefits of red wine for your body's health.
1. Preventing dental cavities
A research by the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry in 2014 proved that red wine (including non-alcoholic ones) can kill more bacteria in the mouth than water mixed with alcohol.
2. Reducing the risk of depression
Drinking alcohol excessively can have a negative impact on body and mental health. But guess what? According to a study by BMC Medicine in 2013, 2-7 glasses of red wine a week (with a dose of 150 ml per glass) can reduce stress and depression.
3. Controlling allergies
Hm, how come? Based on 80 studies published by journals Diseases, research shows that antioxidants named flavonoids found in red wine can reduce symptoms of allergies and asthma. Wow.
4. Strengthen bones
As you get older, your bones become weaker and more fragile. You can increase calcium consumption by drinking milk every day, and also enjoying a glass of wine! Red wine contains high levels of silicon which are good for bone mineral density and reduce the risk of osteoporosis. Plus, you can sleep better, right?
