The total process of conversion of white fat into brown fat that finally burns of as heat, thus preventing obesity and metabolic dysfunction.
Red wine reduces the harmful effects of the UV rays and can protect us from severe sunburn. UV rays activates ROS ( reactive oxygen species) , which oxidize fats, DNA and other molecule. As a result of which other enzymes are stimulated that harm skin cells. Flavonoids restricts the ROS in skin cells that are exposed to UV rays.
The wine molecules are tasteless and flavourless, yet they stimulate the brain to create that sensation, in return making the gray matter of your brain work harder thus boosting your brain health.
