Renowned basketball player LeBron James reveals why he drinks wine every day
NBA star LeBron James apparently likes a lot of wine.
James has been quoted as talking about wine during press conferences, posting wine photos on social media and allegedly using wine to place bets, according to Bleacher Report.
During an interview with Business Insider, James admitted that before a game, he eats chicken breast and some pasta as carbohydrates help a lot in his performance.
But he does not overlook wine. James once told ESPN that he drinks wine almost every day and is an ardent believer in the reported health benefits.
"I heard it was good for the heart. Listen, I'm playing the best basketball of my life and I'm drinking wine almost every day. "Whatever it is, I will consume it again," he told ESPN.
Some studies suggest that drinking red wine in moderation is good for the heart, according to Healthline. Although the link between red wine and fewer heart attacks is not fully understood, some researchers believe that part of the reason may be due to the antioxidants found in red wine that can increase "good" cholesterol levels. , according to the Mayo Clinic website.
"Doctors do not recommend that you start drinking alcohol for heart benefits, especially if you have a family history of addiction," the website said. But if you enjoy a glass of red wine with your dinner, drinking it in moderation seems to help your heart.
