How Wine boosts your metabolism

Yes, you read that right, Wine does indeed increase your metabolism! It is a relief to know this especially after years of listening to all the negative connotations associated with alcohol. But how authentic is this information? Let’s find out.

The intriguing part about Wine is that the Wine calories are digested differently from the food that we eat. The alcohol (ethanol) doesn’t break down like food does simply  because it is a toxic substance. As our bodies send excess ethanol into a complex metabolic process that involves the liver, acetic acid is released eventually in the form of secretions (urinating or sweating) and hence, all of it doesn’t get converted into energy, leaving us with better metabolism. When we drink Wine, the liver and fat cells use the extracts of four chemicals that are present naturally in dark-red Muscadine grapes (key component of red Wine). The most potent of these chemicals, ellagic acid stunts the growth of existing fat cells and prevents new ones from forming. Apart from this, a dose of the supplement resveratrol which is also a natural component found in red Wine is know to improve metabolism too. However, excess of anything is harmful for our body. For this reason, it is suggested that to maintain our metabolism, we must limit ourselves to a maximum of 2 glasses per day (for women) and 3 glasses per day (for men). It is highly recommended that we do not consume any more calories in the form of alcohol i.e. Wine in order to actually let it work as a metabolism booster.
