Alcohol Consumption

For a woman, 1 glass of wine is recommended per day and for a man 2 glasses of wine per day.  Same with beer, 1 bottle of beer/day for a woman and 2 bottles of beer/day for men.  Liquor is in moderation with a recommendation of 1.5 oz per/day (1 shot).  I can say that knowing something about the taste of Italian, French, Spanish and Australian wines that they are all good.  My personal favorite are Chianti’s from Tuscany and Red and White wines from Puglia, Italy of which the taste is light (for whites) and of full body (for Red’s).
The latest research on the grapes DNA has indicated that certain grapes have reached a level of maturity.  This means that various wines will be more flavorful and more availalbe globally!

“Itadori Tea and red wine both supply relatively high concentrations of resveratrol,” states the Journal of Agricultural Food Chemistry.  Furthemore their studies have shown that, ”For people who do not consume alcohol, Itadori tea may be a suitable substitute for red wine.” More studies are being done on Itadori Tea to better understand the effects and benefits of it on the body, as well as, how the non-flavonoid resveratrol contibutes to ones overall health.  J Agric Food Chem. 2002 May 22;50(11):3337-40
