Health Benefits of Drinking Mulled Wine

Prevents Cardiovascular Disease

Oranges used to make mulled wine are high in vitamin c. According to a report published byHarvard Health (https://www.hsph.harvard.edu/nutritionsource/vitamin-c/), Vitamin C has antioxidant properties that reduce inflammation that narrows your arteries, leading to high blood pressure. When your blood pressure levels are dangerously high, you might suffer from heart disease and stroke. Don’t trust the report on Harvard Health? Another study published by the NationalLibrary of Medicine(https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3899405/) links taking citrus fruits with a reduced risk of cardiovascular disease.

Promotes Bone Health

According to an article published on WebMD (https://www.webmd.com/diet/features/health-benefits-wine), red wine in mulled wine Increases bone density. Increased bone density prevents osteoporosis, a condition that causes weak and brittle bones. So, what is the connection between red wine and increased bone density? Glad you asked. Researchers believe it is resveratrol in red wine that prevents bone loss.

Resveratrol contains antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects. Due to this, it can protect against free radical damage that can cause fine lines and wrinkles. Resveratrol can also reverse ageing by boosting cell turnover in your skin.

The work of a family doctor includes a wide range of clinical diversity, which requires extensive knowledge and erudition from a specialist. However, I believe that the most important thing for a family doctor is to be human because the cooperation and understanding between the doctor and the patient are crucial in ensuring successful health care. On my days off, I love being in nature. Since childhood, I have been passionate about playing chess and tennis. Whenever I have time off, I enjoy traveling around the world.
