Yes, this is the news you’ve been waiting to hear! (Aren’t you glad you hung in there to #7?) A little fizz for the love life, a little blood-thinner for your heart, and an awakening knock to your noggin. Drink wine in moderation. It will warm your skin, set the mood by tingling sensitive nerve endings, and cause neurons to dance while resisting cell damage.
What is moderation when it comes to wine?
Enjoying wine in moderation is okay for most of us – a little a day. The American Heart Association has a very good guideline. They suggest up to 2 glasses/day for men and 1 glass/day for women. And yes, that’s measured in ounces, not the size of your glass!
We know the recommendation to limit wine consumption takes a little bit of the fun out of this step but there’s a variety of reasons you don’t want to overindulge when you drink wine. One of the greatest ways it will impact all of the progress of your 10 Steps to Sexy diet is by causing your brain activity to plummet. And so does your athleticism. And we’re trying to improve your abilities in the athletics department, so…resist!
We are all human. We know that the occasional overindulgence is bound to happen. The good news is that this sort of lapse in judgment will not completely destroy your mojo. Just make sure that when you drink wine, this is a very occasional overindulgence.
Are there really health benefits to drinking wine?
However, despite the dangers of overindulging, drinking wine in moderation actually has a lot to offer your sexual and overall health. In fact, according to extensive studies, wine can have some clinically measured, positive effects.
It can fight depression and has anti-aging benefits. And the same antioxidants in wine that will help keep you looking youthful can also promote heart health and keep your blood pumping. (And good blood flow is necessary for sexual satisfaction.) Red wine may also protect the brain from stroke damage. (Studies on the ability of compounds in wine to protect brain cells from damage have been limited. But initial reports show some promising evidence.) Although the research is in its infancy, evidence shows that moderate wine consumption might help fight breast and prostate cancers. So hit the wine in moderation, just don’t hit it too hard.
