Red Wine & Health
Red wine has been associated with heart health for a number of years now. The reason is an antioxidant in the wine called Resveratrol. Resveratrol may be one of natures most powerful anti-aging supplement out there. It has been shown to reduce platelet aggregation in the blood, basically making the blood "less sticky." It also has anti-inflammatory properties. It inhibits LDL cholesterol, (the bad kind). In a few test tube studies it also inhibits tumor growth.
