A Drink a Day Keeps the Doctor Away

Living Mediterranean means living life to the fullest but with that comes moderation and balance. When following the Mediterranean diet, it is recommended to enjoy one glass of red wine per day, and that’s something we can certainly get behind!

Enjoying a 5-ounce serving of red wine not only pairs effortlessly with a savory dish, but the antioxidants that it contains have also been known to reduce your risk of heart disease and diabetes.

So the next time you uncork your bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon or Pinot Noir, savor each sip and rest assured, knowing that you are providing goodness to your body.

Other health benefits of red wine in moderation include:

Reducing risk of depression
Protecting against artery damage
Preventing tooth decay
Increasing levels of high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol (the “good” cholesterol)
Raising levels of omega-3 fatty acids
Preventing cancers

…. We’ll cheers to that!
