Of course yes… and no at the same time. Red wine contains a powerful antioxidant called resveratrol. This substance is known to reduce inflammation in the blood vessels, thereby protecting the lining of the blood vessels and the heart. It also improves cellular energy production by improving mitochondrial function. It may also prevent skin cancer, and improve sensitivity to insulin. But remember alcohol has so many bad effect on your health, from destroying your liver, to affecting performance to its addiction, and it also ruins your heart.
Moderation is believed to be the key. A lot of research suggests, a glass a day, for a total of 4 to 5 glasses a week. Drinking more than this amount eliminates the benefits.
I want you to know that red wine is not the only source of resveratrol, you can also get it from consuming red grapes, cocoa, dark chocolate, blueberries, peanuts and cranberries. So, if you have decided to eliminate alcohol from your diet, you can still get all the resveratrol you need.
