Hooray for science! Hangover free, healthy(-ier) wine is now totally a thing. Scientists discovered how to isolate the gene associated with the production of yeast, meaning no more hangovers. And they can even increase the amount of resveratrol, the ingredient naturally produced in red grapes that gives wine its cardiovascular benefits. But wait… there’s more. The scientists can control and improve taste too. We were sold at no more hangover, but we’ll take those extra benefits too. We definitely don’t mind.
While this wine can save us from hangovers, there are still some other… ahem, concerns, like how after two glasses, we channel our inner Shakira. Not to mention those nights where we just have to pass our phone to our BFF to save us from ourselves. Those consequences are all still very real. So, we’re not totally out of the woods, but it’s a start.
Gives us your thoughts: Hangover-free wine, friend or foe?
