Grape Juice May Be Better Than Red Wine!
Red wine has received recognition as a substance that can provide antioxidants to the body. However, what does it do for the people who cannot have alcohol? If you are unable to have wine or just don’t like the taste of it, you might be wondering what other options you have.
St. Leger along with other researchers determined in 1979 that drinking alcohol can cause heart disease. However, other research shows that like when consuming red wine, drinking grape juice supplies the resveratrol and polyphenols (anthocyanins) that the body needs.
This non-alcoholic nutritional alternative can also keep blood pressure and cholesterol levels down and can reduce risk of blood clots. It also provides protection for the blood vessels, which further promotes blood pressure regulation. In addition, the antioxidants present can stop cancer cells from forming, reduce inflammation and prevent tumors. They also can detoxify the body.
Both red and purple grape juice can provide the same nutritional advantages described above. More importantly, new evidence from studies suggests that the body absorbs the non-alcoholic juice better than it does the alcoholic drink. As a result, the body receives more of the antioxidants that it needs when consuming the juice instead of the wine.
Pregnant women and people with a weak heart will probably think this is excellent news. However, anyone suffering from diabetes or all persons with high blood pressure could benefit. Even people with no serious health problems can improve their condition by drinking grape juice instead of wine.
This also is good news for people who do not currently believe in drinking alcohol. If you don’t already; neither the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute nor the American Heart Association recommend that you start. So, chill some red or purple grape juice instead.
