According to the latest news from the world of science, wine, especially red wine, is increasingly an ally of our health. A research team made up of scientists from Rochester, New York, and Lubbock, Texas, has even found that small amounts of this precious drink help fight weight gain and obesity. Moreover, Hippocrates already knew that wine was good for health, the first great doctor in history, who had thoroughly analyzed it and recommended it as a disinfectant for wounds, restorative in periods of convalescence and invigorating for men who wished to have a son.
This is why today wine, in addition to being the undisputed protagonist of the tables, from the simplest to the most refined, has attracted the attention of doctors and pharmacologists from all over the world, determined to better understand why this drink is so precious. Wine is the product of fermentation, that is, the transformation of sugar from fresh grapes or must into alcohol. It is basically composed of water, which accounts for 80% of it, and alcohol, sugars, acids and 600 other substances, including vitamins and minerals, derived like alcohol from the fermentation process. These components interact slowly with each other, giving rise to a series of reactions that make the wine "alive".
The benefits of wine and red grapes also extend to the skin. The berries of red grapes are rich in polyphenols, substances that have proven to be active in fighting aging and therefore ideal for "rejuvenating" the skin.
The first to use the benefits of polyphenols was Cleopatra, queen of Egypt in the 3rd millennium BC, who apparently already smoothed her skin with must and alabaster. Polyphenols are powerful antioxidants capable of inhibiting the activity of free radicals; they can interact with other natural antioxidants, are particularly soluble and have a remarkable balance between aqueous and lipid phase, which favors both absorption and metabolism.
The grape extracts, due to the presence of proanthocyanidins and resveratrol, are an aid to cell renewal. Their function inhibits and contrasts the increase of the two destructive enzymes of the elastic and collagenic fibers of the skin. Consequently, they protect and stabilize the structure of skin proteins.
Here, then, come forward with the irresistible wine therapy treatments that enhance the natural anti-aging power of the grapes and, at the same time, pleasantly delight the senses.
