How does it aid weight loss?


As per researchers, drinking two glasses of red wine can help you in losing weight. The studies were conducted at Washington State University and Harvard Medical School that claimed a polyphenol called 'resveratrol' which is present in red wine helps in losing weight. This polyphenol converts white fat, which are larger cells that store energy and expand as we gain weight, into obesity-fighting beige fat and this fat is much easier to lose.

This study was done on mice. Researchers enhanced their diet with just a little bit of resveratrol. They found out that resveratrol developed a little more beige fat in mice.

Another study was done at Harvard study on 20,000 women. It revealed that women who were drinking wine had a 70 per cent reduced risk of developing obesity. They also found that drinking wine initially slowed weight gain in women. However, these women self-reported their weight over time.
Other benefits of red wine

A few other benefits of drinking red wine are:

Drinking red wine is good for our health, claim health experts. A few studies have also shown that drinking wine in small to moderate quantity may help in reducing risks for some kinds of heart disease.

Red wine may also help in lowering the risk of strokes and early death. This is because drinking small amounts of red wine helps in retaining the 'good' HDL cholesterol in the blood.

It also reduces the risk of certain types of cancer, including colon, basal cell, ovary and prostate cancers.

Health experts also say that drinking 1–3 glasses of wine per day is also linked with reduced risk of dementia and Alzheimer's disease.

It is also believed that moderate consumption of red wine is linked to a reduced risk of developing type 2 diabetes, especially in women.

Another study that was done on middle-aged and elderly people revealed that those who drank 2–7 glasses of wine per week were less likely to become depressed.

What should you be aware of?

If you want to get its maximum benefits, you must drink it in moderation. Consult a physician to know if you should consume or avoid the consumption of red wine as it may depend on your health too.
