Health Benefits of Wine

Wine is an alcoholic drink many people enjoy dinner or to relax. It is an alcoholic beverage made from grapes which have been fermented without the addition of acids, sugars, enzymes, or other nutrients. In this process, yeast consumes the sugar in the fruit and converts it to ethanol and carbon dioxide. Different strains of yeast and different varieties of grapes produce different styles of wine. There are some varieties of wine that are not made from grapes and these include rice wines, and fruit wines such as plum, cherry, pomegranate, and elderberry. Red wines are made from the dark coloured grape varieties and involve the extraction of colour and flavour components from the grape skins. White wines, on the other hand, are made from the fermentation of non-coloured grape pulps, with the process not allowing any colouration from the skins. Because the skin of the grapes contains most of the antioxidants, red wines generally contain higher amounts of these antioxidant compounds.

Probiotics seem to be all the rage these days. With many purported benefits and a relatively low risk of side effects, manufacturers foresee booming business opportunities. Rather than leave your health in the hands of big business, it is important that you be as educated as possible about the best types of probiotics so you can choose what is right for you and your family. What Are Probiotics? Probiotics are live microorganisms (bacteria or yeast) that have been shown to have a health benefit for humans. They are available in supplement form or in probiotic foods and drinks. Probiotics are thought to be akin to, and to increase the level of, the “good” bacteria found in your intestines. These “good” bacteria are thought to enhance our health through their support of our immune systems. The two major groups of probiotics are Lactobacillus or Bifidobacterium. Each of these groups has a variety of strains. It is thought that different strains may have different effects on your body. Why Now? The current probiotic push lends itself to the question, “If humans got along fine without taking a probiotic supplement for thousands of years, why are they so important now?” Although there is no definitive answer to this question, there have been some significant cultural changes that have had

Most of us suffer from one tummy symptom or another…  some of the most common being bloating, cramps, pain, diarrhoea and constipation which can lead to more chronic illnesses.

There are so  many theories, suggestions, diets and remedies out there but one thing we do know – the same thing does not work for everyone, in fact we are so very different it can sometimes be a frustrating and disillusioning time searching for that one thing that works for us.

One thing we do know is that diet is credited with 80% for weight loss while exercise a tiny 20% and one of the best way to ensure our body machine is working at its best is through our GUT
