WINE AND YOUR HEALTH
Are red wine and chocolate really good for your heart?
Yesss………Red wine and dark chocolate have been thought to be good for the heart because they are rich in protective antioxidants
The antioxidants considered beneficial in red wine come in a variety of forms, but one called Resveratrol has received the most attention. Resveratrol in red wine actually comes from the skin of grapes used to make wine. Because the fermentation process for red wine is longer than for white, red wine contains higher levels of Resveratrol.
Remember that one bar per week of dark chocolate and 1-2 standard sized glasses (125 ml per glass) of red wine per day can actually form part of a healthy balanced diet.
