Two Glasses Of Red Wine Before Bed Can Help Weight Loss

Well, it’s about time!

According to studies completed at Harvard Medical School and Washington State University, two glasses of red wine before bed can help keep those unwanted kilos off.

You know if Harvard said it, it’s legit. #cheers Two glasses of red wine

In a nutshell, red wine contains polyphenol (a micro-nutrient) called resveratrol. Words you should not read after those two glasses of shiraz. Resveratrol will be your new best friend when you realise it turns nasty ‘white fat’ into ‘beige fat’, which is easier to burn off. You can’t turn into a sloth just yet though, beige fat is easier to lose if you actually burn it off through exercising.

“Polyphenols in fruit, including resveratrol, increase gene expression that enhances the oxidation of dietary fats so the body won’t be overloaded,” said Professor Min Du. “They convert white fat into beige fat that burns lipids off as heat – helping to keep the body in balance and prevent obesity and metabolic dysfunction.”
