Would you believe there is now evidence that red wine could burn fat? We found this heartening report on wine.co.za, originally from Cosmopolitan.
Scientists exposed human fat and liver cells to dark red grape extracts and, lo and behold, these extracts appeared to slow the growth of fat cells and also helped the liver cells to burn fat faster.
This would explain why, in a previous study, these extracts slowed weight gain in mice.
So do you really need another reason to enjoy a glass of wine with dinner?
