Do you feel guilty having another one glass of wine? Rather than other alcohol options, wine has always held a slightly loftier position on the health totem pole, and now, once and for all, science just may have proved it.
Researchers honed in on the appetite-suppressing, fat-cell-fighting chemical Reservatrol, which is found in most wines.
This study was conducted over 13 years with around 30,000 women and found that those who consumed two glasses of wine daily (at least one glass at a later hour) were 70 per cent more likely to experience weight loss.
So, as long as it’s consumed in balanced diet and moderation and as part of a healthy, you probably don’t need to beat yourself up about a glass of wine here and there.
