What if I told you that drinking coffee and red wine could increase your longevity? Yes, you read that right. It seems that your morning coffee and evening glass of wine may just be extending your life.

Coffee and Wine New Study Results

A recent study conducted by UC Irvine Institute (called UCI MIND), reports that drinking coffee and red wine can help you live longer. Now that is a trend that most of us can easily stick with. 

The majority of people consume at least one of those beverages daily, and many people start their day with a cup of coffee and end it with a glass of red wine.

How Coffee and Wine Work

Over 1,600 people aged 90 and above when studied during the UCI MIND test. Their lifestyle habits, medical histories, and various other factors were considered that might be contributing to their long lifespan.

Two things these study participants had in common were their regular consumption of coffee and alcohol. Participants consumed both beverages daily in moderation, but how it works remains a mystery.

A key researcher on the study team reportedly stated that she has no explanation for it, but she firmly believes moderate drinking improves longevity.

Coffee and Wine Antioxidants

Coffee and wine are both loaded with antioxidants, which may help to explain their contribution to increasing the lifespan.

Antioxidants protect our bodies from damage caused by free radicals. This reduction in damage also lowers the risk of diabetes, heart disease and dementia, which are all leading causes of death as we age.

Anyone Can Do It

This is one thing everyone can do to help increase longevity. Drinking coffee and red wine does not require a large investment of time, money or effort, and both are readily available. 

The wide range of coffee flavors, brew strengths and temperature choices have already made coffee drinking an acceptable social pastime and coffee houses are on every other corner.

Red wine is inexpensive and available at your local supermarket or bar. Social drinking has always been an acceptable pastime, but remember, drinking in moderation is a key factor to increase longevity.
