Red wine and resveratrol: Good for your heart?

 
Red wine, in moderation, has long been thought of as heart healthy. The alcohol and certain substances in red wine called antioxidants may help prevent heart disease by increasing levels of "good" cholesterol and protecting against artery damage.
Antioxidants in red wine called polyphenols may help protect the lining of blood vessels in your heart.
A polyphenol called resveratrol is one substance in red wine that's gotten attention.
How does alcohol help the heart?
Various studies have shown that moderate amounts of all types of alcohol benefit your heart, not just alcohol found in red wine. It's thought that alcohol:
  • Raises high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol, the "good" cholesterol
  • Reduces the formation of blood clots
  • Helps prevent artery damage caused by high levels of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, the "bad" cholesterol

Switch things up. Even though you should do the types of exercises you enjoy, periodically change up your exercise routine. Doing this will help prevent overuse-related exercise injuries and help keep your exercise routine challenging. This type of cross-training regimen is great for improving strength and fitness. Thanks.

Attend an accredited college or university and earn a bachelor's degree in psychology. Because hypnotherapy is often integrated into psychological counseling and therapy, an academic background in psychology will increase your career potential. Thanks.

The drawback is that employees must pay the entire insurance premiums rather than matching a portion the cost. In general, laid-off employees pay about two hundred for individual rates and $1,000 for family rates. Thanks.

There have also been studies showing resveratrol has anti aging benefits as well in addition to the heart health benefits. I have a little with dinner every night for sure. Consider the supplements on the market if you can't have wine.
