Dear eleonora1-ga;

Thank you for allowing me to answer your interesting question. Let me
remind you of our disclaimer that prohibits us from offering medical
advice. What I am sharing with you is a matter of published research.

Certainly any healthy person can have a glass of wine during the day
and go jogging in the evening. In fact, Harvard medical researchers
(and others) now recommend that good nutrition, a good exercise
regimen and an occasional glass of wine may actually have real health
benefits and may even help prolong one?s life. Red wine for example,
contains antioxidant polyphenols, compounds of grape derivatives of
tannins and anthocyanin pigments and resveratrol a component of grape
skins used in the making of red wine (and also in the skins of in
peanuts, blueberries, and in some pines and roots).

Here is the report from Harvard that reflects what is known based on
laboratory experiments:


Does it matter if the wine is red wine or white wine? Not really.
There are pros and cons to both arguments. While both wines increase
the HDL, or ?good cholesterol?, red wine contains red wine contains
much higher levels of powerful phenolic anti-oxidants that keep your
LDL, or ?bad cholesterol? at healthy levels. Red wine is also known to
be a better aid in reducing the clotting nature of the blood, which
helps reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease better than that of
white wine.

Red wine is also believed to be beneficial in other ways that white wine is not:

It is said to help reduce the risk of prostate cancer

It is also said to be beneficial in reducing the risk of Chronic
Obstructive Lung Disease (COPD):

On the down side, both types of wine may increase homocysteine levels,
which is not good for you, but experts say that increasing your intake
of vitamin B6 may counteract that effect.

Clearly, a glass of wine is not counterintuitive to benefits of
exercise in healthy individuals but remember alcohol of any kind
should be consumed responsibly and only in moderation or not at all.

I hope you find that my answer exceeds your expectations. If you have
any questions about my research please post a clarification request
prior to rating the answer. Otherwise I welcome your rating and your
final comments and I look forward to working with you again in the
near future. Thank you for bringing your question to us.
