Older adults who are aging will have to take care of their health. They might be apprehensive when thinking about their future. The first thing that comes to mind is the limitations and restrictions one has to follow. This includes things like their diet and alcohol. People start to wonder whether it is okay for them to drink wine.
While it is true that it is recommended for older adults to keep away from wine, there are some health benefits that people can enjoy if they drink wine moderately. People who live in retirement communities are also able to enjoy their wine as long as the doctor says it is fine and they pick ones that are healthy for them. Here are some tips to enjoy wine on St. Patrick’s Day.
Red wine brings plenty of benefits to people. Red wine comes with polyphenols, antioxidants, and flavonoids. If you are after the health benefits of drinking wine, then consider drinking Pinot Noir. This kind of red wine is considered to be the healthiest type of red wine. It contains a higher concentration of resveratrol, an antioxidant compound that improves one’s heart health. It lowers blood pressure and bad cholesterol. Resveratrol helps to improve your insulin sensitivity too.
Rosé is one of the red wines you can get away with drinking. It is made using red grapes. The wine-making process of Rosé is different from other red wines and this results in Rosé having a lower antioxidant concentration. However, if you were to decide between white wine and Rosé, this is the obvious choice for you.
Dry red wines such as Merlot is considered healthy. The resveratrol content in Merlot is still considerably high, even if it is not as high as that of Pinot Noir’s. Therefore, you can be sure that Merlot will bring great heart health benefits for you.
Malbec wine is a kind of full-bodied red wine that is made using a purple grape variety known as the Malbec grapes. The Malbec grape variety is one of the grapes with the thickest skins. As the resveratrol antioxidants are acquired from the skins of the grapes, Malbec comes with a high concentration of these antioxidants that keep your heart healthy.
If you decide to move to a retirement community, they will have many activities and events planned for you. You will be able to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day together with your neighbors and friends over fun activities and delicious food. Come try it out for yourself!
