The legend that a glass of red wine daily is excellent for health has been with us since ancient times. Indeed, I don’t know anyone who doesn’t like wine but adheres to this medicine. They would rather eat one apple, clove of garlic, carrot… or whatever pieces must be swallowed daily “for health.” On the other hand, dedicated wine drinkers usually throw themselves into “intensive care”! After all, why only red wine? There are those of us who also love white wines. So, let’s learn something about the health benefits of white wine.

Even Science Recognizes the Health Benefits of White WineEven Science Recognizes the Health Benefits of White Wine

It is true, in fact, that the maligned advantage of red wine as a natural remedy stems from the fact that incomparably fewer scientific studies have looked at the collateral benefits of white wine consumption. However, times are changing here too.

To begin with, prof. Marion Flechtner-Mors from the University of Ulm proved that you can freely replace 10% of your calories with white wine during a weight-loss diet. The result will be as if you struggled “on purpose.” It is not insignificant. However, it has not been proven that alcohol in any form is a catalyst for weight loss.

The study of Prof. Das from the University of Connecticut, who was involved in comparing the antioxidant effect of red and white wine, showed that the effects of resveratrol from red wine equal the impact of tyrosol and hydroxytyrosol from white wine. What’s more, it turns out that white wines have a similar composition of antioxidants that olive oil has. Or, no white wine! Stick to French, Italian, and German white wines, suggests Prof. Das.

Scientists from the University of Ankara confirmed the same. Even though antioxidants are mainly found in the skin of grapes, which participates very little in the production process of white wine, the protection of cells against oxidation is undoubtedly the same as if you were consuming red wine!

Health Benefits of White Wine in Connection With Cancer

In this sense, researchers from the University of Buffalo proved as early as 2002 that moderate consumption of white wine throughout life positively affects lung health. Still, in 2010, their colleagues from the University of Wisconsin also proved that white wine protects the body from breast cancer just as well as red.

This was confirmed by Prof. Lamuela-Raventos from the University of Barcelona, varying different technological processes with the conclusion that introducing mandatory maceration in the production of white wine would also increase consumer health benefits.

The Best Choice for Weight Loss Is Champagne

Finally, according to research from the University of Reading, if you’re determined to lose weight and reduce your risk of heart disease, it might be best to turn to champagne – it’s generally lower in calories than red and white wines. That’s not all, either. Certain varieties of red grapes, which are used in producing champagne, are excellent sources of phenolic acid, which, again, is an excellent protection against dementia. And there are the already mentioned tyrosol and hydroxytyrosol from white grapes, which are excellent neuroprotectants. And I trust them because it suits me. In short, two to three glasses of champagne a week after age forty will help you remember why you drink in the first place for a long time. Along with some possibly even more useful facts…

And speaking of facts, one must not be forgotten – moderate consumption! Translated into practice, this means one glass of wine (150 ml) daily for women or two glasses (2 x 150 ml) for men.
