Sipping a glass of wine is a moment that brings about pleasant sensations and benefits for our body.
We might indulge in a glass of wine after a tiring day at work, to calm our nerves, to celebrate an achievement or just to treat ourselves. The benefits of wine do not only extend to those moments of enjoyment, but to numerous positive effects on body and mind alike.
Against tiredness and apathy
A good glass of wine helps us relax and soothes our nerves, but have you ever wondered why? Wine is rich in endorphins that soothe the mind, and fight apathy and fatigue. In fact, the resveratrol in grapes helps combat physical weakness. So why not treat yourself to a glass of wine after a hard day’s work?
The benefits of wine: it helps prevent disease
Various scientific studies have demonstrated the numerous psychological and physical benefits of wine:
- it helps prevent dementia and other degenerative diseases;
- it fights infection;
- it inhibits blood clots;
- it protects against cholesterol build-up as it is rich in polyphenols and antioxidants.
A glass of wine can also keep our bodies healthy and clear of bacteria and infections. Wine is also an ally of our skin: thanks to its resveratrol, a molecule with strong antioxidant action, it can slow down aging.
Drinking a glass of wine once/twice a day gives us a moment of pleasure, with benefits for body and mind alike.
Vinotherapie: the benefits of wine for total well-being
The famous nectar of the gods has always been a precious friend to mankind. Its tradition dates back thousands of years: indeed, it was very much appreciated by Cleopatra, who loved must massages, or by Caterina Sforza, who used wine in her beauty treatments.
The many benefits of wine have given rise to vinotherapie: a series of body treatments, such as bathing in warm grape pomace, massages to reinforce the microcirculation, and exfoliation through gentle skin peeling. Vinotherapie originated in France, in the Graves wine district, and has now spread all over the world, particularly to Spain, Italy, Argentina and Brazil.
Body treatments and massages are often combined with food and wine tours to provide an all-round experience of pleasure and well-being.
