Who doesn’t love wine? In my opinion, it’s truly the drink of the gods. So how awesome was it, years ago, when research started revealing the health benefits of wine?

Most of us know wine is full of antioxidants, and is great for preventing heart disease. No secret there. But I recently found a couple of benefits that aren’t so widely known. (Of course if you’re like me, you don’t need more reasons to drink up. Here goes anyway):

Wine benefits women’s sexuality

A study (of nearly 800 women, ages 18-50) was published in Oct 2009 in The Journal of Sexual Medicine that showed that the regular, moderate intake of red wine was associated with higher sexual desire, lubrication, and overal sexual function, as compared to teetotallers.

How lovely.

Another benefit?

Wine is associated with better cognitive test performance

This study was performed on 2000 subjects in Norway, and published in the Journal of Nutrition in January 2009. It showed that people who consumed flavonoid-rich wine, chocolate, or tea had significantly better scores on cognitive tests than those who did not. Participants who consumed all 3 goodies (chocolate, wine, and tea) had the best test scores. The effect was most pronounced for wine, and a little weaker for chocolate.

And a big cheers to that.
