Red Wine Fights Fat!


Yes, it is true!

Red wine suppresses estrogen production in fat cells, and increases the release of Leptin an appetite suppressing hormone.

Red wine also decreases cortisol, a hormone that increases appetite and is associated with stress.

Red wine prevents fat storage

And

(drum roll…)

promotes fat breakdown!

Fat cells are the most important site of estrogen production in postmenopausal women, and in men.

Red wine contains chemicals such as quercetin, myricetin, resveratrol, and procyanidins that interfere with estrogen production.

A Brazilian study showed that rats treated with red wine showed less weight gain than control animals, even though they were fed the same amount of food. Bon appetite!
