Your Good Health!: The Medicinal Benefits of Wine Drinking
Better Red than Dead!
Increasing numbers of health experts and scientists are saying that “wine is good for you”, and that there are medicinal benefits of wine-drinking.
Scientific studies have shown how moderate wine drinking lowers the risk of heart disease (especially red wine, which is high in flavonoids). Thanks to its medicinal properties, moderate wine drinkers are 85% less likely to catch colds than those who do not drink; two to three glasses of sweet white wine a day are more effective than fibre at preventing constipation; a glass of champagne is the best cure for indigestion and a glass of wine could even keep wrinkles at bay.
Dr E. Maury, a homeopathic doctor, has spent his life studying the medicinal properties of wine and now provides specific guidelines for the best wines to choose for your good health. From Champagne (loss of appetite, detoxification, mineral deficiencies), to red Bordeaux (diabetes, obesity), to Médoc (diarrhea, rheumatism) there is a wine to suit your every health need.
