Red wine has long been touted for its wonderful health benefits and antioxidant properties.
Studies show that red wine at a moderate level can lower the risk of heart attack, raise good cholesterol and lower bad cholesterol. In addition, it also staves off blood clots along with reducing the damage caused by fat deposits.
Other research shows that those who drink wine are less likely to suffer heart disease, diabetes and dementia.
But could it really be the secret to lasting weight loss? The jury is still out. Yet, the innovative new Red Wine Diet promises to lengthen your life, improve your overall wellness and lose weight as a byproduct.
The creator of the diet is Roger Corder, a prominent researcher who's been with the William Harvey Research Institute for more than a decade. Now. he is touting the Red Wine Diet which relies on flavonoid polyphenols called procyanidins. Procyanidins have been shown to prevent clogged arteries, high blood pressure and cholestrol.
Of course, everything in moderation. Corder's program barely gives a license to drink all you would like.
The good news is that these miracle-working procyanidins can be found in dark chocolate, berries, walnuts, apples and other sources. It is also important to show that all red wines are not created equal. Some brands contain greater levels of the renowned procyanidins than others.
In the Red Wine Diet, Corder gets the reader up to speed as to what they should be looking for in a bottle of red wine as far as it relates to overall wellness.
The general principle of the Red Wine Diet is to consume the beverage on a daily basis. In addition to an in-depth look at red wine, there are 50 recipes that are made from the key foods containing procyanidins. Of course, it is a case of everything inmoderation.
