A glass of wine with dinner is a perfect way to wind down from a busy and tiring day. In fact, there are lots of health benefits that come with enjoying a glass of red wine. An antioxidant called Proanthocyanidins has been said to reduce oxidative damage to our bodies. Side effects associated with OS (Oxidative Stress) consist of fatigue, wrinkles and grey hair, headaches and memory loss or brain fog.
