The benefits of a glass of red wine (… and TGIF)
Force yourself to enjoy a glass of red wine tonight because of the health benefits … okay, maybe it won’t require any great sacrifice on my part to imbibe in a little vino this evening.
Here’s the deal: red wine is considered to be good for you (in moderation of course) because it contains the antioxidant resveratrol, which is is said to slow the oxidation process that causes aging. Grapeseeds also contain polyphenols, antioxidants that fight free radicals that damage skin.
If you want the benefits of the daily glass of red wine, but not the calories or alcohol itself, your local health food or supplements store carry different brands of chewable concentrates that claim to have the antioxidants of up to 1000 glasses of red wine! There are also studies that say grapeseed extract enhances UV protection–but you still have to wear your SPF!!!
Next week I want to introduce you to a few supplements by AdvoCare that we carry at Indulge Salons because the best beauty starts on the inside. Stay tuned … and enjoy a glass of wine in the meantime.
