Is red wine good for you?

Is red wine good for you?

No: The active ingredient in red wine is Resvatrol, which comes from grape skin, This is what is touted to give red wine its antioxidant health benefits. Alcohol is a toxin to the liver. The damage done by the alcohol in red wine far outweighs any health benefits from its antioxidants. Therefore I cannot recommend red wine as anything that is beneficial to your health. Get a resvatrol supplement.

How much red wine should I drink each day to get the health benefits?

How much red wine should I drink each day to get the health benefits?

Well.............: Health benefits of alcohol intake include wine, beer and liquor (not including what you mix it in). Red wine is not significantly better. Studies show that people who drink 1-2 standard size beverages a day have better cardiovascular outcomes than those who do not. One standard beverage is 12 oz beer, 5 oz wine, or 1.5 oz liquor. Any day with more than 2 is not as good, so more is not better.
