  • Yes. That is why I drink a glass of wine every night...also it helps me unwind.

  • Yes, absolutely. It's loaded with all kinds of beneficial natural chemicals resveratol, other stuff (you can google it). I started drinking one small glass a day with a meal to help my cholesterol. My HDL (the good cholesterol) is over 70 now and I am sure the wine is one of the reasons. I also put cinnamon in my morning cup of coffee so that's probably helping, too.

  • You can get the same Resveratol from other foods, like fruits and veggies. The risks, overall, outweigh the benefits. That said, if you're going to splurge on a glass of vino, red is the better option. Eating grapes, skin on, will give you the same benefits, and you'll get fiber and more vitamins.
