The Oldest Natural Antibiotic! You Drink It But You Don’t Know Why You Drink It!

Some doctors advise their patients to drink a glass of red wine a day telling it is good for their health. Many people drink a glass of wine every day as they follow the advice of the doctors but they don’t always know the reasons why the doctors recommend this. They drink it just because the doctor said to.

The benefits of red wine are known since a long time ago. Ancient Romans liked their wine. Julius Caesar asked his Roman soldiers to drink a moderate amount of wine regularly to prevent them on catching diseases. A few hundred years ago, during cholera outbreaks, when many people died because of the disease, it was then noted that those people who have been drinking wine did not caught the same disease as the pandemic took effect.

Drinking wine is very healthy if you drink it in moderation. Studies proved that a glass of red wine contains substances with antibacterial effects to our body and is proven to be cure for different viral infections.

A study of a team at the University of Illinois, published in New Scientist magazine, concluded that red wine acts as an antibiotic in the body. The scientists tested the effects of concentrated extracts from Pinot Noir wine and resveratrol (a chemical found in the wine) on certain bacteria, and found that both compounds stunted the growth of colonies of bacteria.

The antioxidants that are found in red wine may help prevent heart disease by increasing levels of high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (the “good” cholesterol) and protecting against artery damage.

Enjoy a good wine by drinking it in moderation! Drinking more than recommended can have the opposite effect on your appearance and health.
