Not only is thinking about your lifespan something that isn’t top of mind every day, but it’s also something you may intentionally avoid thinking about. We don’t blame you for not having this knowledge but you sure need to have it because is your life.
Your longevity may be a pretty dismal topic to reflect on regularly, but it’s worth your consideration. And we have an extremely easy way for you to significantly influence your life expectancy.
No, it doesn’t involve keeping track of all the food that will either shorten or lengthen your lifespan and how they fit into your diet; this tip involves knowing this one drink that is scientifically linked to a longer, healthier life — and then drinking it every day. It’s as simple as that. Best of all? That drink is red wine.
That’s right, you heard me right, drinking red wine every day in a reasonable quantity might just help you live even further into your golden years.
Are you telling me that drinking alcohol will really help me live longer?” Technically, yes. But it has to be red, wine — white or Roe wine won’t do the trick. remember, don’t abuse it, consume it reasonably, And that’s because red wine is one of the best sources of flavonoids: a group of bioactive antioxidants that have been linked to longevity.
A group of researchers examined data from the Nurses Health study one of the largest and longest investigations into the risk factors for major chronic diseases. The researchers, who published their findings in the British Journal of Nutrition, found a close link between eating flavonoid-rich foods and a reduced risk of all-cause mortality, compared to those who did not consume these foods in significant quantities.
Specifically, the Harvard researchers discovered that red wine had the strongest association with longer life.
If you don’t drink alcohol, there’s no need to start. You can also opt for drinking tea every day, as the researchers also found the same link between drinking this antioxidant-rich beverage and reaping the reward of a longer life, albeit not as strong as with red wine.
