A glass of wine a day keeps the doctor away! That’s right folks, there are major benefits to drinking a glass of wine a day and here at Lucky Shot we are helping our employees stay healthy with implementing Winning With Wine Wednesdays! Because who doesn’t like the idea of drinking at work?!
Studies have shown that there are major health benefits from drinking one glass of red wine a day. And today ANOTHER benefit of our favorite form of grape juice was revealed! Studies show that wine prevents bacteria from sticking to gums preventing cavities and gum disease (so, less dentist visits!). If you need more reasons to drink while you work (and why would you?) than take a look at the other benefits to drinking wine!
