    Health benefits of wine found in grape juice


    I was wondering to myself if red grape juice had the same longevity properties as red wine. I couldn't find much on the forum so I decided to check it out for myself.

    It appears that grape juice has the same antioxidant properties and polyphenols of red wine, it also increases good cholesterol. In red wine, the concentration of resveratrol is increased possibly from something in the winemaking process or the alcohol.

    The thing is, you won't get the empty calories, decreased protein synthesis,  or dehydration from the alcohol. True, if you're concerned about the sugar and the insulin spike from I guess it would be a problem, but you probably wouldn't be drinking red wine anyway (yeah, I think I read somewhere that red wine won't kick you out of keto...whatever).

    Here are some articles:

    Would the same go for a nonalcoholic red wine?

    Is 4oz of wine per day really going to be enough alcohol to negate muscle growth?
