Mavrodaphne and health

It is commonly known that all red wines are good for the heart, because they contain polyphenones that cleanse the arteries of harmful proteins.



Polyphenols are found in grape skins and pass to wine, because in fermentation on skins must is fermented with the skins.
Another ingredient of red wine, resveratrol remarkably reduces the occurrence of inflammations that lead to heart diseases, strokes and type 2 diabetes.

However, in Achaia Mavrodaphne is consumed also by anaemia patients since it has been said to help to increase haemoglobin levels.
Mavrodaphne like all wines and spirits must be consumed in moderation. The high alcohol volume gives one more reason to consume Mavrodaphne at a quantity not exceeding 100 ml per day. After all, this wine has the advantage of not spoiling and a little oxidation improves it rather than downgrading it. We can open a bottle and consume it slowly, even throughout an entire year.
