Tummy problems and Wine

Posted on Posted in Uncategorized

tummyAnyone who suffers from tummy troubles, such as IBS or reflux, knows how bad it can be. Many people with poor stomachs can live life as healthy human beings, with the right diet and a little help from medication. But other than probiotic rich foods, there are many products that can aid happy digestion. And wine-lovers, it’s your lucky day – red wine is one of them.

A recent research conducted by scientists from the Autonomous University of Madrid has shown that the bacteria present in wine are able to stick to the walls of the human intestine, providing beneficial effects as the “exclusion of pathogens” or harmful bacteria.

The study showed that the probiotic properties of lactic acid bacteria isolated from wine are similar to probiotic dairy products, plant foods, fish and meat. The consumption of probiotics is beneficial, especially to maintain a healthy community of intestinal bacteria and intestinal function, by lowering inflammation caused by unhealthy foods. They also have anti-cancer effects and can lower cholesterol.

But how should you do it? How much should you drink and when?

Of course, this study doesn’t mean that you should glug a bottle of Bellus at once. Alcohol still has the potential to cause severe tummy problems, if consumed in vast quantities. Stick to the recommended daily amounts and you could see a significant difference in your stomach health.

Try sipping your red wine slowly before a meal. This will get your stomach to produce digestive acid, ready for your main course. Instead of lining your tummy with food, line it with a little Touriga Nacional. Between mouthfuls, keep taking on a little wine. The alcohol will help break down the food in your tummy, making it easier for your stomach to digest.


任何人总被肚子的问题所困扰而苦恼,例如肠易激综合征或胃酸回流。人人也知道它的坏处。但是只要有正确健康的饮食习惯和药物治疗,很多拥有不太强壮的胃的人也能够过着健康的生活人生。但除了益生菌丰富的食物外,还有一些可以帮助消化的快乐食品。而葡萄酒爱好者,今天是你的幸运日 – 红酒就是其中之一。

最近由马德里自治大学的科学家进行的一项研究所显示,目前,葡萄酒中的细菌能够粘著人体的肠壁,起到了 “排斥病原体”或有害细菌的有效作用。

研究表明,从葡萄酒所分离的乳酸菌的益生菌性质类似于奶制品,植物食品,鱼和肉类的益生菌性质。
益生菌對我们是有益的,尤其是它们会维持肠道细菌和肠功能的健康,通过降低不健康食物所引起的发炎。它们也具备防癌作用,并能降低不健康的胆固醇。

但是你应该怎么做呢?你应该喝多少以及何时去喝?

当然,这项研究并不意味着你能够立刻去咕噜咕噜地大口去喝一瓶巴路仕紅酒的。过度摄取酒精仍然有导致严重问题的风险。但是如果每天坚持适量,你将可以看到你的胃健康和以前相比的的显著差异。

尝试每次进餐前去慢慢品味葡萄酒。葡萄酒会让你的胃部产生消化酸,准备好你的主菜。先以少许国产多瑞加去代替那些你将下肚子的食物。进餐几口之后,继续服用一小杯葡萄酒。酒精会帮助你的肚子去分解食物,使食物们更容易让你的胃所消化。
