Why red wine could be good for your gut – in moderation

Red wine could be good for the gut, increasing the number of different types of helpful bacteria that can live there, according to researchers.

Proktolog.az reports citing BBC.

The benefits are likely to come from polyphenols – compounds that white wine, beer and cider have far less of, the King’s College London team says.

A glass a fortnight was enough to make a difference, but researchers say the findings are not an excuse to binge.

Polyphenols are also found in many fruits and vegetables.
