The Red Wine Diet
We've often heard about the health benefits of wine, with studies appearing in dribs and drabs about how the stuff helps keep everything from your heart to your brain healthy. But we've never been quite sure exactly how wine helps so much, and that's where the new book The Red Wine Dietcomes in. Sounds like an interesting read, with suggestions for which types of wine have the biggest benefits, recommendations for other foods that will accentuate the wine's good properties, and recipes to try out as well.
In a landmark study, Roger Corder revealed that compounds called procyanidins are the key components of wine for preventing illness. Now, in The Red Wine Diet, he argues that drinking the right kinds of red wine and eating procyanidin-rich foods such as dark chocolate, apples, and berries can help us live to a ripe old age-while enjoying all the pleasures of life.
