Grape Juice vs. Wine
It would be safe to assume that grape juice would be equally as beneficial as its wine sibling, seeing as how they both come from grapes, right?
That appears to be true. Experts say that both grape juice and wine have the same heart-healthy goodies, like resveratrol and flavonoids. Choose juice made from red or dark purple grapes and you will reap the advantages of wine minus the buzz. Like alcohol, wine can also lessen a person’s risk of blood clots and help to prevent LDL, the ‘bad” kind of cholesterol, from clogging arteries.
A daily swig of grape juice or wine may also help to lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels. A sipper must of course be careful of artificial ingredients and excess sugar when choosing grape juice.
Then again, wine can also have some affects that are not so beneficial to your health, since alcohol lowers your inhibitions, leading to overeating.
