Consumption of alcohol has always been associated with harms, scientists have proven that it’s even worse for women as the effect of alcohol on women is even more adverse because of the difference in metabolism rates between men and women, also the fact that the water levels in a woman’s body are lower resulting in the same amount of alcohol affecting the woman more. Being said that, women are more prone to heart and liver diseases. Also, it increases the chances of developing breast cancer to a whopping 15%.
All of us have some certain indulgences, so why not just switch to some wine instead? Because, honey, where there is a wine, there is a way! Pour yourself a glass because wine does you good in more ways than just shedding your woes away. It is, in fact, medically proven to be beneficial to your health, if taken in appropriate quantities.
Red wines are rich in an excellent antioxidant called “resveratrol” found in the skin of the grape. These help to keep cholesterol in check, maintain blood pressure, reduce the chances of a heart disease.
Shockingly, it’s proven by scientists that this antioxidant present in red wines reduces the chances of cancer in women.
Red Wines also boost the immune system and protect your skin.
White wines are produced without the skin of the grape and therefore, misconstrue it to be less beneficial but that isn’t true at all. Phenols that are present in white wines are also rich antioxidants that helps fighting off the radicals that can really deteriorate health.

5. Cabernet Sauvignon
Robust and structured, the earthy flavors of this wine gives it a very hearty finish. The strong taste of black fruits such as thick-skinned grapes, blackberries and black cherries accompanied with the hints of licorice, tobacco and black pepper and just a slight toss of vanilla makes this full-bodied wine is a perfect choice for women who love their oaky wines. This dry wine tastes even better with finely cooked mushrooms and short ribs.
6. Pinot Noir
Despite being one of the most expensive wines out there, Pinot Noir is one of the most-raved about red wine ever! In fact, it’s quite delicate and paler than its other red friends then what makes it so special? Well, it’s all in the grapes. The thin-skinned red Burgundy grapes that date back to the Roman age are used to produce such a fine wine which are difficult to cultivate and are often grown in boutiques. The lush taste of strawberries and raspberries striking against the licorice and tobacco gives Pinot Noir a creamy texture. The other notes of vanilla, mushrooms, and cola just seems to enhance the flavor. High acidity and low-tannins enhance the floral side of this wine.
As mushrooms really compliment the earthy flavors of this wine, they usually make a great side dish.
