“Blacklisted” Drink Cures ANY Disease?!
Let’s be honest, staying healthy isn’t always easy.
Your body has so many different parts that need tending to: your heart, bones, digestive system. Knowing what to do to keep them all healthy can feel overwhelming.
But the one thing that is crucial to maintaining your overall health is taking care of your gut microbiome – the bacteria, fungi and other microscopic living organisms that exist inside you.
You see, these bugs play a HUGE role in keeping you healthy by controlling digestion, helping your immune system and much more.
In fact, having a healthy gut could be the key to curing ANY disease.
Now, there’s an easy way to give your gut microbiome – and health – a BIG boost.
And it’s all you have to do is enjoy more of a drink the mainstream “blacklisted” decades ago.
A study published in the journal Gastroenterology tested the effects of cider, beer, liquor, white and red wine on the gut microbiome of 916 study participants.
Those who were considered red wine drinkers had more diverse (a good thing!) gut microbiota.
Polyphenols, a naturally occurring compound found in many fruits and vegetables (also found in red wine) cause bacterial diversity. They also contain antioxidants that act as fuel for the microbes found in your body.
This is not to say you should go down a bottle of your favorite red.
But moderate consumption of wine (a glass a day) is proven to be great for your gut, which is vital for staving off diseases like diabetes and Alzheimer’s.
Research also shows that red wine can help lower “bad” cholesterol levels and help prevent obesity.
Evidence reveals that you can reap the benefits of a healthier gut just by consuming a glass of red wine once every two weeks.
So if you’re looking for an evening drink to go with your dinner tonight, indulge in a glass of red wine.
