Wine Before Bed Helps You Lose Weight? That’s What They Say!

Are you a wine lover? Well good news! Turns out, we wine drinkers might have an edge on weight loss!

MORE health benefits of wine - WEIGHT LOSS!

Wine Drinkers are LESS Likely to Be Overweight

Wine drinkers, let’s gather together and rejoice!  According to a study, drinking wine before bedtime could help us lose weight!

Supposedly, there is some connection between wine drinking and weight loss.

Now, THERE’S a win for all the wine lovers out there!

(sidenote: Here are some unique wine gifts that we love)

From what they say (quoted below) those that drink 2 glasses of wine a night are 70% LESS likely to be overweight.

Like we need a reason to drink wine! haha!

“According to The Drinks Business, Washington State University scientists found that resveratrol, a polyphenol found in red wine, can help transform stubborn white fat into burnable brown fat. A separate study at Harvard found a link between wine and weight loss. Researchers examined 20,000 women over 13 years and saw that those who drank two glasses of wine daily were 70% less likely to be overweight.”

This might be a “in your dreams” type of internet thing, but the concept behind it sure makes sense to me.

Well, that’s MY story =)

It makes sense that there are some health benefits to drinking wine.

Wine IS made from grapes, and grapes are packed full of healthy stuff.

How Big of a Glass of Wine?

Now, don’t get too excited at the 2 glasses each night thing.

You don’t want your wine glass to look like this:

The standard size of a glass of wine in restaurants is anywhere from 4 ounces to 8 ounces per glass (my favorite restaurants are the 8oz plus ones!)

So no, one BOTTLE does NOT equal “one glass” <grin>

But I’m more than happy to have my two glass of wine and my crushed ice like Sonic serves each night, how about you?

More Healthy Benefits of Wine

In the past 10-15 years, many researches have been conducted on Wine health benefits on our healthy lifestyle, or not so healthy life style. They have all concluded that Red Wine in particular have enormous benefits on our cardiovascular system and to a lesser extent on other bodily systems.

These researches have shown that flavonoids and antioxidant, is present in abundance in Red wine. Flavonoids reduced the risk of heart disease by controlling our cholesterol levels.

As mentioned before, moderate consumption of Wine has other health benefits to other parts of the body. Wine health benefits have been shown to extend to fighting cancer and other degenerative disease. Present in the skin of grapes is a substance called resveratrol, it has been shown to extend life in the lab, and it also has tumor inhibiting activities on some cancers.

Wine health benefits have been around for a long time. Even heard of the “French paradox”, well it goes like this, a news report on French lifestyle brought to our attention the fact the French diet is rich in meat, cheese, butter and other high cholesterol foods, but yet their rate of heart disease and death associated with heart disease is considerably lower than elsewhere in the world.

Do the French know something that others do not know – maybe not. But they also consume allot of wine, and this is believed to be the cause of the lower heart disease rate.

Should you move to France? I don’t know, but you can try to consume a glass of wine when you eat. Preferably red wine, it is good for you and it seem to have more of the health benefits than others.

Miss Anything?
