In today’s health conscious world, many people chose to live an alcohol-free lifestyle. Here are some fascinating health benefits of non-alcoholic wine:
When alcohol is removed from a wine, so too are large quantities of calories. Alcohol is created from the fermentation of natural sugars found in the grape, hence, the strong relationship between alcohol, sugar and therefore – calories.
The removal of alcohol from wine translates to a reduction in calories. With an average of just 20 calories per 100ml, de-alcoholised wine can be enjoyed by people on reduced-calorie diets who don’t want to be limited to diet drinks.
Anti-aging / Antioxidant
Wine contain antioxidant called resveratrol, found mainly in grape skin and grape seeds. Antioxidants are extremely important when it comes to skin care. They help repair sun damage, and reduce inflammation and the appearance of wrinkles. Researches found that the alcohol in wine can possibly blocks the antioxidants from providing any benefits.
So if people (especially women) who are drinking red wine for the beauty and benefits, it may be a good idea for them to switch to one without the alcohol.
According to research, non-alcoholic red wine was found to be even more effective at lowering blood pressure in men who are at high risk for heart attack. The study findings were published online September 6, 2012 in Circulation Research.
