Red Wine, Does It Truly Help Cure The Body?

Most people enjoy sipping on red wine, and they also enjoy hot bubble baths, but New York Knicks’ Amar’e Stoudemire enjoys soaking in it.

The 31-year-old player, who currently had knee surgery, claims that bathing in red wine makes him feel great after intense preseason play.

His elaborate treatment include4s a red wine and water bath, followed by a 90-minute massage and then moving to a salt tub, a hot tub, a cold plunge and finally, a pool.

Amar’e truly believes that the red wine makes a big impact.

“The red wine bath is very important to me because it allows me to create more circulation in my red blood cells,” he told ESPN.

Apparently, the ancient Spartans were said to bathe their infants in wine to make them stronger. Red wine has been known to possess some health benefits, this is thanks to resveratrol –an antioxidant found in the skin of red grapes and cocoa. Red wine has also been shown to encourage heart health.

“There is no scientific evidence to disprove his theories and there is also no scientific evidence to prove it,” says Dr. Whitney Bowe, a dermatologist in New York City.

“If it is helping him, he should absolutely keep doing it, but it may not be the red wine [causing the good feelings],” she added.

Dr. David Geier, an orthopedic surgeous and sports medicine expert in Charleston, South Carolina, thinks that a reason Amar’e might feel so good is because it is still early in the NBA season.

“He may feel better because he has had a few nights off. It’s hard to imagine how lying in the red wine would have any affect on [cartilage] pain,” he said.

Geier also added that as long as the treatments are not harmful to the athlete’s, they should continue to do what makes them feel healthy.

“The red wine bath and spa treatment can reduce cortisol levels, simply relieving stress can have a benefit for overall health and well-being. He’s decreasing cortisol and stress in his body,” added Dr. Bowe.

What do you think about this?

Could it all truly be in Amar’e’s head or do you truly believe that red wine could potentially have positive affects for the body?
