Imbalance of good bacteria in comparison to bad bacteria in the intestine can lead to many health problems such as loss of immunity, weight gain or high cholesterol.
The high number of different species of bacteria in the microbiome of a person’s intestine is considered a symbol of a healthy gut.
In a study published in the journal Gastroenterology, a team of researchers explored the effects of beer, cider, red wine, white wine and spirits on the gut’s microbiome.
They found that the microbiome is more diverse in the intestines of those who consume red wine than those who do not consume red wine.
Researchers found that there were a large number of different species of bacteria in the microbiota of the intestines of red wine drinkers. According to him, this may be due to the high amount of polyphenols present in red wine.
Polyphenols are a chemical that is found naturally in many fruits and vegetables. It contains many beneficial ingredients including antioxidants and acts as a fuel for the microbes present in our intestine.
