Health Effects Of Red Wine: How Moderate Drinking Can Be Good For You

Posted: Oct 30, 2019

Sometimes after a long day at work, I look forward to washing dinner down with a fine glass of wine.

(Yes, even when I have work again the next day…)

Wouldn’t it be nice if wine actually was beneficial to your health? Luckily for both of us, that’s actually the case – for moderate quantities, anyway.

That’s right. Wine – particularly red wine – can influence your health in a number of positive ways.

À votre santé!

How Can Wine be Healthy?
For many of the positive effects of wine, the full benefits only come when you drink in moderation.

The concept of hormesis and the hormetic zone refers to the dosage of a particular substance or physical stress which causes a positive biological effect. Generally, these stressors have a J-shaped dose-response, where some exposure is “good for you” but continued exposure can cause damage.

The classic example is working out. Working out 3-6 times a week for an hour or 2 builds an impressive physique, but too much exercise can lead to injury and symptoms of overtraining.

So too for wine; a moderate amount of wine (and the alcohol in it) – a glass or two a night, maximum – can have positive effects. However, too much alcohol over time has the opposite effect – you can assume that most of the benefits in my list will dry up.

Of course, too much wine also leads to acute effects… like a terrible hangover that’ll ruin your day.
