According to the doctor, when drinking red wine, its polyphenols are transported unchanged into the intestinal tract. By interacting with the intestinal microbiome, these substances stimulate the growth of beneficial bacteria and the functioning of microflora – as a result, the processes of absorption of nutrients and the breakdown of proteins contained in meat are improved. That is, wine really helps to digest meat.

According to Isaev, there is an individual sensitivity to alcohol; in some cases, small doses are enough to cause destructive effects.

“You can also drink meat with non-alcoholic wine, which goes through the same fermentation process, after which the alcohol is extracted using a technical method. Such wine does not lose natural polyphenols,” the expert stated.
