Wine, an ally to prevent skin cancer

 TAGS:undefined

Wine has many benefits for the body, both exterior and interior. Several studies have established the advantages of wine on the skin, giving it greater elasticity and youth. And now it could also prevent skin cancer, as it happens with other types of cancer.

To this statement, four scientific studies that have been developed in various countries, show some of the effects of wine in preventing skin cancer. Specifically, they state that the effects of wine polyphenols act against the various cell types of skin cancer.

For example, one study states that resveratrol inhibits the growth of a type of squamous cancer, which like the rest, is caused by the ultraviolet rays from the sun, while another study establishes that resveratrol can induce opoptosis of cells from cardinoma epidermoid type A431.

One of these studies that demonstrate the relationship between wine and prevention of skin cancer was performed in Spain, specifically in Madrid. In this case, the research concluded that three red wine polyphenols inhibit the growth of melanoma cells. There are different types of skin cancers, being the melanoma the most dangerous of all them, being malignant. Skin cancer goes unnoticed by many people and, in fact, is one of the most spread among Spanish population.

Finally, another study tested in this area established that polyphenolic combination has a strong therapeutic potential in the treatment of melanoma on humans, which reproduces and grows with sun exposure, mostly.

In these studies it was found that the application of various types of polyphenols that compose wine on the dorsal area of mice affected by skin cancer could stop the degree of development of this type of cancer.

 TAGS:undefined

Historically it has been known that wine provides many nutrients and health benefits. But now it has a direct competitor, the beer, which now stands as another drink with several advantages for the body in general. Today, we show you these 10.

  1. Good for the heart. A number of studies have established that the consumption of beer, always moderate, reduces cardiovascular disease by 30%.
  2. Against arthritis. Studies performed with beer suggest that women who drank moderate levels of beer were 22% less likely to develop rheumatoid arthritis.
  3. Brain stimulator. It is good to stimulate the brain, so a beer per day helps reducing the appearance of some memory-related brain diseases.
  4. Rich in potassium. Beer is rich in potassium, a fact that offers a good diuretic effect.
  5. Decreases pressure. If you drink beer moderately, there is less chance of having high blood pressure in the long run.
  6. Vitamin B. It brings large doses of vitamin B. This is good for some issues, such as regeneration of cells.
  7. Good for the bones. Other minerals found in beer, such as magnesium or phosphorus help prevent bone-related diseases.
  8. Antioxidant. It provides natural antioxidants, so beer is good for delaying skin aging.
  9. It’s not fattening. Contrary to common belief, beer -always consumed in moderation- is not related to weight gain, as shown by a study from the University of London with nearly 2,000 beer drinkers.
  10. Very hydrating. It brings a lot more hydration than other types of soft drinks. And it contains much less sugar.

So, you know, drink beer, but always in moderation! Today we recommend a french and a italian beer:
