The wine is associated with many moments of our lives. It is combined with our food and is connected with our social life. There are clinical studies showing that the logic wine consumption is beneficial to our health, especially when it is part of a diet to standards of the Mediterranean.
The available studies show that moderate wine consumption may benefit our cardiovascular system. Other studies show that men and women who consume 2-7 glasses of wine a week are less likely to develop depression. A large study conducted by the University of Loyola US showed that moderate consumption of red wine may reduce the risk of developing dementia.
However, what we should not forget, is that the effect of alcohol on our body is dose dependent. What does this mean in practice? People who consume alcohol in moderation are at lower risk than those who do not drink at all and from those who drink too much.
International organizations recommend drinking no more than one serving of alcohol per day for women and two servings of alcohol for men. When talking about portion we mean the amount of drink that contains 14 grams of alcohol, eg .:
– 150 ml of dry wine
– 350 ml beer
– 45 ml distillate drink 40% e.g. vodka, whiskey, etc.
Of course, much attention should be given to people with health problems.
As for calories, the energy that gives us a glass of wine depends on the alcohol content and whether it contains sugar. A glass of wine may yield from 100-300 calories. It should be noted that one gram of alcohol yields 7 calories when one gram of fat yields 9 calories while one gram of protein or carbohydrate gives 4 calories. This means that a sweet wine may contain fewer calories than a dry wine.
