Antioxidants are a superfood for the body. According to Mayo Clinic,they protect your cells against free radicals, which may play a role in heart disease, cancer, and other diseases. But what is the best wine for antioxidants?
Why Antioxidants are good for you
Free radicals are molecules produced when your body breaks down food or when you’re exposed to tobacco smoke or radiation. Free radicals play a part in heart disease, cancer, and other diseases. The best way to fight them naturally is antioxidants. Antioxidants come in a wide range of food and drinks but for right now we are just focusing on one type of drink.
Wines are good source of antioxidants
Besides just being tasty grapes are a great source of antioxidants. Grapes contain vitamin C, beta-carotene, quercetin, lutein, lycopene, and ellagic acid, which are powerful antioxidants as well. This just another reason why wines in moderation are a good source for healthy living.
Are some wines better than others?
Yes! Clean Label Project is a nonprofit whose mission is to show you what is in a product beyond just the label. We have tested over 400 wines (you can read the full study here) and award an antioxidant superiority award to the best wine for antioxidants. We award these to any wine who has 25% more antioxidants than the median wine. You can see our winners here and know you are getting the best in regards to antioxidants.
