So How Good Is Wine For Our Health?

Antioxidants known as flavonoids found in red wine might help protect women from cardiovascular disease, according to research published in 2007 in the “American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.” Flavonoids come from the skins of grapes; white wine is made without the skins, so it's a lesser source of these healthful compounds. According to Yale-New Haven Hospital, cabernet sauvignon, petit syrah and pinot noir have the highest concentration of flavonoids. Don’t get too excited, though -- bran, apples, pears, grapefruit, strawberries and chocolate, along with red wine, were all linked to a lower risk of cardiovascular disease or coronary heart disease in the study. In another study, published in 2011 in the "Journal of Wine Research," women experienced a decreased risk of metabolic syndrome -- a cluster of conditions that leads to heart disease -- if they drank one glass of wine a day.
