Enjoying a glass of wine and benefiting from it; it’s possible!
These days, study after study is being pushed under our noses to tell us what is healthy and what is not. While we take a lot of it with a grain of salt, we’ve now found one we really like… If any of these studies are in our favor, we’re bound to believe them, like this one. Researchers have discovered something funny about red wine!
Do you love a good glass of red wine as much as we do?
Red wine is a classic drink that a lot of people enjoy drinking. The red drink pairs well with red meat and cheeses, but it’s also wonderful to just have a glass of it at night on the sofa. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Shiraz or Tempranillo: some people have a clear preference, while others like them all.
We have always been under the impression that you should drink red wine at room temperature. Apparently, this isn’t true at all! According to Wine Academy, it’s much better to drink red wine at a temperature between 12 and 18 degrees. A warmer temperature is said to bring out the taste of alcohol too much, which means the subtle taste of the wine is lost.
Now, it turns out that red wine is also very good for us. Researchers from the Spanish National Research Centre in Madrid have come to the conclusion that drinking red wine is very good for your teeth. According to the scientists, this is because it contains a substance called polyphenol. This substance causes bacteria not to stick to your teeth. This means you’ve got a smaller risk of getting plaque, calculus or caries.
Not only this, but red wine can also help you to lose weight! How? Read all about it on the next page!
