Red wine has been found to increase libido in both men and women
According to a recent study published in the Journal of Clinical Medicine, red wine has been found to have positive effects on sexual health in both men and women. The study analyzed nearly 30 years of research and highlighted the role of polyphenols, the compounds found in red wine, in boosting libido.
Polyphenols, also found in dark chocolate, tea, herbs, and certain fruits and vegetables, have powerful antioxidant properties that help prevent oxidative stress and cell damage. Additionally, red wine has been shown to improve vascular health, enhance blood flow, and increase levels of testosterone, which is responsible for sex drive in both genders. Fascinatingly, women consuming moderate amounts of red wine displayed improved sexual desire, lubrication, and overall sexual function.
The presence of ethanol in red wine, along with its interaction with polyphenols, may also contribute to its positive impact on the reproductive system.
