Resveratrol in red wine helps us in getting slim by preventing the development of fat cells.

Of course, it has a lot of benefits. But do not mistake me. I am not saying that it does not harm us at all.
As we know, an excess of anything is very bad. It is beneficial when it is taken in limited amounts.
It is stated in many pieces of research and reports that women need to be careful about the amount of alcohol they consume.
It is said that alcohol increases the chances of breast cancer in women. We really really need to be careful about taking just the right amount, as there is a very thin line between it being beneficial and healthy and it being harmful and risky.
And we really need to measure that line carefully for our sake.
It is said that 1 to 2 glasses a day, and just three to four days a week proves to be beneficial for women.
With all the information provided about our favorite drink, i know each woman is sensible in its own way to know their limit. They do know how to figure the thin line that I spoke about above. They know what and how much will help them in the future, and how much will harm them.
Anyone taking alcohol in excess capacity should know the risk of breast cancer for women is 10% which raises up to 15% or more depending on the alcohol consumed. I again repeat, an excess of anything is not good.
I would suggest everyone not to over do to seek extra benefits as you never know what happens. But yes, as proven by many pieces of research and studies, red wine is really beneficial in anti-aging, curing various diseases, etc.
With all the happiness provided to most of the women by this article, I would like to end by saying…
A glass of red wine a day keeps the doctor away. 😉
