So we have all heard a small glass of red wine each day can be good for your heart, right? But did you ever think it may also make you skinny?! I know, we sound crazy. Scroll down for some science
Where does the magic happen: Ellagic Acid, Resveratrol, & Piceattanol, that's where.
These 3 components in wine are pretty amazing! Ellagic acid was shown in a lab to reduce glucose levels and lower fat accumulation in the liver, resveratrol reduces the absorption of glucose by human fat cells and piceatannol was found to prevent fat cells from converting into fatty tissue. Don't believe us? We read about it on Wine Spectator and they have no reason be biased right?
And if you don't believe Wine Spectator, ask the Italians! Italian food is rich with bread, pasta, cheese, butter, oils and all of the delicious ingredients standardly restricted on a diet meant to ensure a bangin' beach body. When we ask our Italian friends how they eat such an indulgent diet, their eyes sparkle and they smile as they tell us "it's the wine". Round of applause everyone. They win at life.
