    A little Red Wine?

    Fellas,

    I know its bad to drink alcohol, what about 1 small glass of red wine before bed. I've always heard that its good for you but what about for "bodybuilders?" Would it effect fat loss on a cut up cycle or muscle gain on a bulker? Personally, I don't but would love to for the effect it has on my sleep.

    Let me know what you think, Thanks!

    Its good for the heart, as they say.

    I wouldn't see a problem with it, just not every night, IMO.

    God dam***this is the stuff that gets me about this nutrition, bodybuilding.......stuff. All this conflicting info.

    "... article from www.ast-ss.com

    Yes, red wine should be a part of every health conscious personís diet. Small amounts of this beverage provide numerous cancer-preventative effects but red wine may also enhance fat metabolism [2]. One of the biggest discoveries is nutritional science is the identification of resveratrol, the active ingredient in red wine. This compound has been shown to dramatically increase the rate at which cells metabolize fat. Resveratrol stimulates the SIRT1 gene to produce a protein called sirtuin-1 which blocks a receptor on fat cells. When this receptor is blocked, lipolysis (the breakdown of fat) is increased and the formation of new fat (adipogenesis) is decreased [2]. Other studies have shown that the stimulation of this protein by resveratrol (red wine consumption) also activates the genes that promote a longer, healthier lifespan. Resveratrol comes from the skin of grapes but since it oxidizes quickly (losing its metabolic effect in the process) fresh grapes and white wine are less effective sources. Red wine is a unique source of resveratrol as it retains the same amount of as was in the grape at the time of fermentation.

    Iíll give you an idea of how much I believe in the health benefits of this compound. Previously Iíve never drank red wine and never really cared for itís taste at all. However, based on the steadily accumulating health benefits of this drink Iíve trained my self to have a half-glass of red wine with my evening meal, every night. This small amount wonít have any detrimental effect on body fat and itís all thatís required to provide some rather powerful heath benefits. It doesnít have to be the expensive stuff either. Around 5 bucks will get you a very drinkable red. Seal it tightly as it red wine tends to go acidic quite quickly.

    Now, Iím not advocating that consuming large amounts of red wine is going to get you ripped. Not for a second. Alcohol is alcohol; it is a calorie-dense nutrient that acts a lot like fat in promoting calorie storage. However, bodybuilders need to get their head around the idea that everyday science is unveiling previously ďhiddenĒ compounds in regular foods that have profound benefits to our metabolism and physiology and sometimes these compounds are found in foods that are not your typical bodybuilding staples. Smart bodybuilders will incorporate this new research into their diets and reap the benefits."
