There’s nothing more sensual than a rich, velvety glass of red wine. However, the aphrodisiac qualities in a glass of vino extend past the associations with relaxation and indulgence. While no alcohol is good to consume in excess, in moderation, red wine is actually fairly healthy – it contains reservatrol, which is a plant-based chemical compound with antioxidant properties that helps with heart health. For men, a glass of red gets the circulation going and makes sure that the blood is circulating everywhere. For women, a 2009 study in The Journal of Sexual Medicine (with, granted, a fairly small sample size), consuming a reasonable amount of red will allegedly increase and enhance sexual desire, lubrication, and overall sexual function.
