True.. Actually it is true. The American Heart Association has even said that a glass a day will lower your chances of heart disease.
Its Okay,. A small glass of red wine a day has helpful antioxidants that can help you, but drink in moderation. Too much alcohol can hurt your liver, but in moderation, it's okay.
For the Most Part. Red wine is packed with antioxidants that fight free radical damage to your cells, which is the primary cause of aging and can also contribute to ailments like heart disease. While drinking red wine in moderation (in addition to other kinds of alcoholic beverages) has garnered a lot of positive results in clinical studies, the jury's still out on whether or not it has other long-term health ramifications. Studies have shown that drinking, whether in moderation or excess, can be taxing on the liver. A recent study also revealed that drinking alcohol can result in the depletion of brain cells, no matter how much you're taking in.
