New Research Says Drinking Wine Before Bed Makes You Lose Weight
When it comes to alcohol, I can be a bit difficult. At the age of 18, I began this great research in the world of alcohol, trying each one of them, trying to determine which of my tastes I liked and did not like.
After many incidents that made me sick and bedridden, I decided that wine was my favorite liquor.
It not only contains twice as much alcohol as most beers, but it also contains antioxidants. Researchers have shown that it can even help you lose weight if you drink before going to bed.
Scientists from Washington State University and Harvard Medical Schoold have discovered a chemical in the wine, resveratrol, which helps the body’s cells take on more fat.
They found that drinking two glasses of wine a day can help reduce the risk of obesity by about 70%.
Wine can serve as a preventive measure against obesity. The 13-year longitudinal study conducted by Harvard University showed that women who drank two glasses of red wine a day were 70% less likely to become obese than non-drinkers.
The fight against obesity is another thing for which red wine is good. The study conducted by Washington State University showed that wine had properties that went from white fat to fat, which can easily be burned.
Red wine owes these processing effects to a polyphenol called resveratrol. Resveratrol can be found in the hull of the grape and is produced in response to an injury or when the plant is attacked by fungi, bacteria or other pathogens.
When consumed by humans, resveratrol has antioxidant properties that can help fight obesity and diabetes, improve heart and bone health, and even contribute to longevity.
Red wine is rich in resveratrol. That’s why some are not worth going to bed after a day of work and commitments, but are also very healthy.
If you needed one more reason for a few bottles of wine, a Harvard weight-saving study found that out of 20,000 people tested, not everyone who was gaining weight was drinking alcohol!
Why at bedtime, you could ask?
A study from the University of Arizona found that resveratrol had the ability to suppress appetite. This means you no longer need other nighttime snacks that can increase your blood sugar and calories (creating new layers of fat that can burn you).
The combination of the effects of resveratrol is simply hypnotic. Imagine rewarding yourself with quality wine at bedtime and controlling as much obesity as you like.
It removes your nocturnal appetite, turns your white fat into beige fat that you can easily burn and protects your health.
Do you want to have less stress, sleep better and feel happier … without drugs or something crazy?
