If you are like most of us and worship your glass of red wine but are fed up of being reminded that alcohol is the worst enemy for your weight loss, then sit back and breathe, because researchers have come up with overwhelming evidence that proves that red wine can actually help you burn those unwanted calories.
According to A Journal of Biological Chemistry Study, red wine actually blocks the growth of fat cells in the body. The burning property found in red wine is credited to the compound found in it called ‘resveratrol’. Red wine has always been known for its anti-inflammatory nature and for its surplus amount of anti-oxidants.
For a deeper understanding and decoding of the whole mysterious process of fat burning, the explanation is an antioxidant called Polyphenols. Although some of these Polyphenols aren’t absorbed by the body very well. These unabsorbed polyphenols ultimately become the food for bacteria which is good for your digestive tract and helps in the improvement of the fast metabolism which in turn helps in the faster burning of the calories. Thus the red wine shifts the bad types of bacteria to make space for the new ones making the body healthier and making you look lean.
Thanks to the Spanish researchers who found this in their study while they were examining the red-wine drinking people and their digestive tracks for 20 continuous days. Research claims that having four to six glasses of wine in a week will make you live longer and help you increase the good cholesterol in the body.
Well but hold your horses and control your excitement. The point here is not to go gulp down a bottle of red wine and expect to get up slim and trim. Have you heard about ‘moderate drinking’?
How moderate is moderate drinking for you? In the United States, a 5-ounce glass of your red wine makes it count as one drink. So for moderate drinking, two drinks a day for men and one drink for women can be strictly considered ideal. But these innocent glasses might add up quickly if you cross the line of moderation. Also, the excess amount will definitely lead to weight gain, liver inflammation, high blood pressure, increased risks for cancer.
This comes down to make us believe in the fact that red wine is a boon to maintain the healthy body weight in a long run. Given that it has multiple health benefits too like reduced risks of cardiovascular diseases, cancers, strokes, dementia, Alzheimer, type 2 diabetes can make you less likely to become depressed by controlling your happy hormones. Wine is definitely our favourite.
So ditching your wine to burn your calories is not a good option because the very fact of its little contribution in your weight loss is a win-win for us.
Statutory warning for the teetotalers: Stop yourself from rushing to the nearest wine store right now. Different beings have different health and body types thus it is advised that one must consult their physicians before taking any steps.
