What is the effect of drinking red wine? Also I find it difficult to stool the following morning because the stool was very strong, what caused it

Two questions: Red wines contain tannins which enhance taste. There are about 50+ varietals. Some people do not tolerate wines for various reasons. Hard stools, if related to the wine are likely caused by dehydration. Wine acts as a diuretic, causing you to urinate more, and because you are imbibing the wine you may reduce your water intake. Of course, your stool issue may not have anything to do with wine. ...Read more
