One of the oldest alcoholic beverages on the planet is wine. Although heavy drinking of any alcohol brings lots of trouble to your health, recent studies suggest that a glass of red wine every day may provide you with more than just a modest relaxation.
Red wine may also prevent the formation and progression of atherosclerosis or the hardening of your arteries. Atherosclerosis begins when blood vessels begin to lose their capacity to relax. Red wine contains polyphenols that helps maintain healthy blood vessels by facilitating the formation of nitric oxide which is a relaxing chemical.
