More reasons to Drink Wine
Maybe wine IS God’s gift to man. Every year seems to bring new discoveries of how wine is good for us.
The latest discovery, and one of the more intriguing, is one which iidentifies red wine as helping to induce sleep due to the high amounts of melatonin, a hormone that is produced in our bodies and that helps regulate our internal "body clock", which tells us when to sleep.
Italian researches now tell us that some grapes they tested, particularly Nebbiolo, has very high amounts of this compound. The researches concluded the existence of melatonin in the grape skins of Nebbiolo and other grape varieties that eventually make their way into wine, could keep help us keep up a regular sleep schedule if taken regularly.
Of course there’s always the skeptics. This time its those who point out that maybe its the alcohol that would make us sleep better. Yea…it could be that. But did they have to go on to say that alcohol before bed can provide a less restful sleep? Damn those skeptics.
