From Wine to Whining: Why the Hangover and What Can You Do?

For many of us, wine makes us feel like crap.
  • Headaches
  • Nausea
  • Hungover
  • Brain fogged
  • Grumbly stomach
Does this sound like you?  Are you ready to  goodbye to the hangover?

Say hello to Biodynamic Wine. It is also known as natural wine and dry farmed wine.

Are Biodynamic Wines and Organic Wine the Same? 

No. The only thing they have in common is that both  prohibit the use of synthetic chemicals.
Biodynamic farming takes it several steps further to incorporate ideas about a vineyard as an entire ecosystem, using regenerative sustainable farming practices respecting land and life.
It also takes into account things such as astrological influences and lunar cycles.

Biodynamic wines are superior to organic wine. 

  • Less toxic
  • Better for the planet
  • Grown as nature intended
  • Contains more life force.

 The Problems with Conventional Wine 

🔍 CONVENTIONAL WINE

  • Not organic
  • Uses heavy pesticides and herbicides
  • Increasing mold risks
  • Uses irrigation water which exposes grapes to pesticides (glyphosate) and other environmental toxins
  • Fermented using GMO lab grown yeast
  • Can have up to 76 additives in wines
  • Sulfur dioxide is added THREE times during conventional processing because it kills bacteria, allows for shelf consistent bottles, and no variation from bottle to bottle.

🔍 WHY DOES CONVENTIONAL WINE USE GMO YEAST?

Easier to work with, less temperamental Can withstand a higher alcohol content up to 15% or more Can buy certain yeasts to achieve a flavor profile
.

❗️USA LABELING PROBLEMS

Ever notice that there are no contents labeled on wine?
Lobbyists have made sure to keep that absent.
So you’ll never know how many of those 76 additives made it into that bottle.
The EU allows for 56 additives.

Labels can LEGALLY misrepresent alcohol contents.

You can state 14% alcohol when it actually contains 15%. How is this possible?
In 1940’s, a law was passed to allow for variance because of inaccurate laboratory testing then.
Today, we have accurate testing, but wine lobbyists fight to prevent changing this law around labeling because the higher the alcohol content, the more federal excise taxes wine makers have to pay. So, it’s a money thing.

.❗️MOLD TESTING

In the EU, all wine is required to test for mycotoxins. However, in the US, testing is only required for wine that is exported to Europe. 

🔍 WHY DO CONVENTIONAL WINES CAUSE HANGOVERS?

❗️HIGHER ALCOHOL CONTENT
The average alcohol content of conventional wines is higher today around 15%, thanks to GMO yeast. Due to labeling laws, you could be drinking more alcohol than you think.
❗️ INCREASED METHANOL EXPOSURE
Barrel aging affects components of wine – exposure to newer oak barrels imparts methanol, which is twice as toxic than ethanol alcohol. Traditional winemakers use barrels that are neutral, after six to seven vintages.
❗️ HISTAMINE RELEASE
Biogenic amines are naturally produced in the fermentation process, like tyrosine and histamine, which cause health problems in us. These are less of a concern with biodynamic wines due to the richer polyphenol content, the lower alcohol contents, grape maturation and processing! Of the 76 additives, 4 are poisonous. Without labeling, we can’t see which we consume.

🔍  NEGATIVE HEALTH EFFECTS OF ALCOHOL ON THE BODY

❗️ DEHYDRATION
Alcohol is a diuretic, making you urinate more and lose fluid. (NBK557381)
❗️ ELECTROLYTE IMBALANCES
With increased urination, you also lose sodium, potassium, magnesium, calcium, and phosphate. (NBK557381)
❗️ B1 THIAMINE DEFICIENCY
Seen in chronic alcohol use. (NBK557381)
❗️ TRIGGERS FOOD AND SUGAR CRAVINGS
Alcohol blocks the liver from making sugar internally, and can cause low blood sugars (hypoglycemia). This signals you to eat more! (NBK557381)
❗️ WEIGHT GAIN
Alcohol calories cannot be stored, and are instead the first to burn.
Alcohol calories are always used first, shutting off fat burning. As a result, any foods consumed with alcohol is more likely to be stored as fat.
Alcohol is a source of empty calories, at 7 calories per gram Liver enzymes convert ethanol alcohol to acetaldehyde, an incredibly toxic inflammatory compound that has been shown to cause tissue damage, and is one of the culprits in causing many hangover symptoms.
❗️ DEMAND FOR NUTRIENTS TO DETOX ALCOHOL
Elimination requires more of a nutrient called +nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD), which can be derived from niacin. (PMID: 17718403)


HOW TO LIFEMOD WITH WINE

.🔸U.S. WINES: Find labels with any of these words: organic, biodynamic, dry farmed. They cost only a few bucks more and it’s worth it. I have found them in NJ liquor stores.

🔸The alcohol content of wine is a good indicator, stick to ones that are at 12.5% or lower. The higher the alcohol content means it is using GMO yeast, assume more toxins and additives in it!
🔸Choose European wines, especially ITALY. Also checking alcohol content at 12.5% or lower. EU wines will not be labeled USDA organic since that’s an American thing, however their labels may say they use organic grapes.
🔸Google for biodynamic wines brands online. New Jersey distributers may be able to order them in for you, or order direct online.
🔸Drink responsibly! Stick to 1-2 glasses
🔸Drink water between each glass of wine, and 2 cups before bed
🔸Be mindful of overeating and snacking while drinking alcohol! Avoid the junk!
🔸 Learn how to make your own wine at home!
🔸 Get your hand ons on ttps://www.dryfarmwines.com  Great as gift for family, friends, coworkers, or someone you do not know that well!
