At last we have found the elixir of health and longevity! Because of its antioxidant content, wine has considerable preventative qualities with regards to cardiovascular diseases, reduction of harmful LDL cholesterol in the blood, and prevention of ischemic cardiac disease. As a precaution, it suffices to drink one glass a day.
It is not a revolutionary breakthrough. The positive effects of wine on the human body were very well researched by ancient Greeks and Egyptians. Long ago, it became known that wine helps with colds and generally strengthens the immune system, all while protecting against cancer. It wards off bad moods, gloom, and depression. It helps prevent Alzheimer’s disease, improves one’s sex life, and helps fight diabetes.
Wine may even prevent heart attacks, protect blood vessels, and prevent hardening of the arteries. It is suitable for various diets, because wine facilitates the digestion of fat. In addition, drinking wine will help one age more slowly, similar to eating grapes or consuming them in a delicious drink. Wine also reduces risks associated from smoking cigarettes. Therefore, smokers should eat fresh grapes or drink a glass of wine as part of their daily routine.
Consumption of wine helps to tackle many health complications and even works as prevention. But wine also has external body uses. We are talking about pure, squeezed juice with grapes, which helps soothe pain when a wound is inflicted. It also heals, disinfects, and stops bleeding.

But be careful — here it is important to choose raisins which are unsweetened and non-sulphate.
