A Toast to Having a Glass of Wine Daily

Posted on

So, we've stood on the soapbox professing the benefits of bag-in-box wines, and our Boxxle unit itself. But we've been slightly amiss in the fact that we have yet to speak of the many benefits of wine itself. Whether you've opened yourself up to the possibilities of boxed wine, or still prefer imbibing from a glass bottle, wine has a number of health benefits that you may be happy to hear. So here's a toast to wine!

A 29 year study of almost 2,500 men shows that moderate wine drinkers experience a 34 percent lower mortality rate than beer or liquor drinkers. We've often heard about the heart benefits that accompany a glass of wine which is backed by a study performed by the Harvard School of Public Health over a 16 year period. This study showed that moderate drinkers are actually less likely to suffer a heart attack than those that don't drink wine. 

A Columbia University study also showed that the chance of suffering from a blood clot-related stroke is also cut by almost 50 percent with moderate partaking. 

Other health benefits also include the reduced risk of developing diabetes, less chance of colon cancer, reduced likeliness of cataracts and the minimizing of brain function decline. 

It needs to be stated and understood that these studies were based on the moderate drinking of wine, which is defined by the American Heart Association as one to two four-ounce glasses per day. 

Still, with all of the benefits of drinking wine, coupled with the benefits of what is arguably the best box wine dispenser, enjoying wine by the glass has never been so conveniently good for you.
