Scottish scientists believe that red wine contains antioxidants and thus protects from exposure to strong inflammatory agents. Such statement was made by specialists from the Glasgow Biomedical Research Center.
Their research showed that long-term consumption of red wine in small doses reduces the risk of developing serious infection-related inflammatory diseases (such as sepsis and peritonitis) and assists healing during other types of inflammations. Experiments were conducted on mice, and the results showed that the main inflammation-fighting agent in wine is reservatol, antioxidant found in the skin of grapes. Two types of this antioxidant block action of molecules that trigger inflammation in the body.
