Red Wine Diet
Here's a toast to new research that says red wine is a healthy choice.
It might be one of your favorite little indulgences, and you are always finding contradictory information stating that it's good for you and that it's not good for you. Red wine has been promoted since the '90s as offering exceptional benefits for heart health, and then other sources will refute that news.
Now, compliments of researcher Roger Corder, you can cork your next bottle and feel confident that it's a positive choice.
Roger Corder, a leading researcher with England's William Harvey Research Institute for 15 years, has written the book on red wine - literally. In September 2007, he released The Red Wine Diet. Critics are calling it groundbreaking, revolutionary and a breakthrough. He has committed his research to once and for all finding what it is about red wine that is so beneficial. And it is here, in The Red Wine Diet, that he presents his findings.
Corder warns that you should not pick up The Red Wine diet if you're looking for another fad diet or overnight weight fix. The Red Wine Diet offers a gradual and holistic approach to living a longer, healthier life - where weight loss is one of the many benefits over time.
In the '90s, when the word on the street was that red wine was just what the doctor was prescribing for heart disease, Corder's ears perked, from the perspective of a well-traveled wine enthusiast and as a pharmaceutical and diet researcher. He asked three questions, which became the basis of his red wine research: How does red wine reduce heart disease? What is the protective component? Do all red wines confer the same benefit?
He has successfully answered these questions and the findings have resulted in his book, The Red Wine Diet.
The answers to those questions? Here's the high-level review. In red wine, there is a group of flavonoid polyphenols (organic chemicals responsible for deep color and complex flavor in red wine) called procyanidins. These are typically found in wines that have had a significant fermentation time and wines that have been allowed to settle, rather than go through a filtering process. Procyanidins are typically found in younger wines and especially French and Italian varieties. These chemicals prevent clogged arteries, high blood pressure and cholesterol.

Not a wine drinker, but still seeking the heart-healthy benefits? Corder didn't leave you out. The procyanidins can also be found in berries, pomegranates, walnuts, apples and darker chocolates. You can experience the benefits when consumed with a balanced diet.
The Red Wine Diet outlines a natural approach to living a healthier, longer life. The book includes the findings of Corder's research and the scientific link between wine and health, as well as the right wines to drink, and more than 50 organic recipes.EXERCISE

The Red Wine Diet outlines a natural approach to living a healthy life. Corder brings scientific research to the table in his argument for moderate red wine consumption. This is good new for wine lovers, who think that diets are always about deprivation.Common Misspellings
