Scientists have recently discovered a new mechanism that may explain why drinking red wine may be beneficial.  In a recently published report in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition it stated that “Spanish researchers discovered that chronic consumption of red wine actually increases bifidobacterium in the gut of humans. Bifidobacterium is one of the important species of bacteria that lives within the human intestines and is associated with reduction of inflammation”.  As with anything moderation is important in this situation.

As always,

Be well,
