Red wine has been scientifically proven to have amazing health benefits for those who consume a glass a day. From improved heart function to cancer prevention and more. But a new study has just found another benefit that comes with the regular moderate consumption of red wine.
In a study at John Hopkins scientists found that red wine can help reduce the damages to the brain after the body experiences a stroke. It seems that the resveratrol, a natural compound that is in the skins of red grapes, can help reduce brain damage that is associated with strokes. It seems the resveratrol increases the level of an enzyme in the body that is known to put up a sort of shield the nerve cells in the brain.
While we never know if and when a stroke will strike this little preventative measure can decrease the risk involved with a stroke by simply taking in a glass of red wine a day. This means that shoppers have yet another good reason to add red wine to their Barossa Botanica Wine Tote on their next trip to the store.
