A Glass of Wine

What a lovely day to write a blog. Well, I'm going to visit my uncle this weekend and I know what's going to happen. Knowing him, I know that I am going to exposed to a lot of wines and liquors. He loves to collect these kinds of drinks that we even shared a few shots at times. One thing I love about my uncle is that he allows me to drink provided that I'm with a family member and my drinks will be moderated.

Anyway, let me just clarify that I am not a heavy drinker. I just do it occasionally especially when I pay my relatives a visit. After tasting the finest red wines my uncle's collection has to offer, I had one question in mind. What does this do to my body? My dad told me that it is not good to drink these kinds of beverages. Of course, it is not what my uncle stated but does it have positive benefits as well?

So what I did was read a lot of blogs that can answer my question and I must say that I was shocked with the benefits it can give me. Well it is quite obvious that drinking wine can help people get some good night sleep. One thing that I liked about it was the fact that it can help me fight tooth decay. I mean I can't believe that strengthen the enamel that prevents tooth decay and bacteria.

In short, this is not just a drink. I am sure of that because it also has an antioxidant that can help lessen the growth of fat in the arteries. I don't want to go deeper and be technical about it. All I know is that it is good for the heart. With all of this mentioned, I think it is safe to say that drinking a glass of red wine a day can help the body. I better tell my daddy these facts.


  1. Red wine is good for the heart but with one downside i.e high glycaemic index. Not suited for people with diabetes.

  2. Oh yes. Thanks for the info, Austin!
