Click on the title for important information about red wine in Medical News Today. Plant based foods contain as much if not more polyphenols as red wine. Polyphenols protect our cells from threats in the blood stream. Polyphenols are readily available from cloves, dark chocolate, berries, beans, nuts, black and green teas, and many other foods. It can be difficult for most to stick to a limit of 5 (women) to 10 (men) ounces of red wine per day.
Consumption in excess of these limits is associated with an increased risk of cancer, high triglycerides, obesity, liver disease, car accidents, high blood pressure, heart failure, stroke, physical abuse, irregular heart rhythms, suicide and swelling of the pancreas.
Reach for the walnuts or blueberries instead.
