Bonus: Wine is good for your sex life
Wine is good for your sex life? Absolutely! Sure, we all know what happens with overconsumption but glass or two a few times per week can be beneficial both to heart health and sexual health.
It’s a proven fact that wine is beneficial to cardiovascular health and circulation. The main compound in wine making waves in the health world is resveratrol. Resveratrol happens to be a very powerful phenol. And one of the places it’s found is in the seeds and skins of grapes. Red wines get all the attention for heart health because they have a greater resveratrol concentration than do white wines. But all wines, including red, white, rosé and sparkling, contain some level of resveratrol. And it benefits cardiovascular health because it acts similarly to an antioxidant, protecting the heart from damage. That sounds like a pretty good reason to drink wine, right?
But that’s not all. Studies show that resveratrol also boosts blood flow to the brain and may help improve memory as well as overall brain health. And it’s believed that resveratrol has anti-aging potential not that different to that of antioxidants.
And while they may not improve your sexual health, the aromas in wine also have the potential to improve your sex life. That’s right, the mere scent of wine has the potential to help you get lucky! We know this thanks to a physician and researcher by the name of Dr. Max Lake. In the 1990’s, Dr. Lake, (who also happened to be a vintner in Australia’s Hunter Valley), explored the aromas in wine. He was able to prove that many replicate the scents of human pheromones. Meaning? Wine can even be a turn on before you take a sip!
