On tv the other night there was an experiment to determine the health benefits of red wine. The conclusion was that some red wines weren't that rich in flavonoids so didn't really benefit you that much. The best one for flavonoids was Nebiollo. However that one is incredibly expensive and hard to get hold of. The others that the experiment said were good for you were Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir and Petit Syrah. I know absolutely zilch about wines but I have been drinking Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon 200 mls every evening for the health benefits as the "head gentleman" of the experiment said 200 mls would see the health benefits of the flavonoids kick in. However the practice nurse at my surgery is horrified that I'm downing 200 mls every night. She maintains 100 is quite enough and more isn't advisable. I'm not a lover of alcohol but so many people say how good red wine is for you that I decided to drink 200mls every night. Is this advisable? As in good for you? What do others think?
