Resveratrol is a compound that helps turn the excess white fat into beige fat which is easier to burn. Burning off the excess white fat reduces cholesterol and prevents blood clots as well.

Red wine also has a good amount of antioxidants known as polyphenols which lowers the risk of heart diseases. The antioxidants help the lining of blood vessels in the heart which prevent heart damage.

Polyphenols also enhance the oxidation of fat which helps resveratrol work its magic. However, polyphenols get filtered out during the wine production process. So, the study recommends that intake of fruits like blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, grapes and apples in whole would be more beneficial.

Well, wine is made of fruits anyway, right!? Cheers!
