Get Younger: Eat Pizza and Drink Wine
It’s no secret that tomatoes contain lots of lycopene. It’s an antioxidant compound that helps prevent heart disease and illnesses.
How do they do it? Antioxidants are free radical scavengers. They slow or prevent the oxidation of other molecules by capturing free radicals.
The scientific community suggests that eating lycopene-packed foods that also have small amounts of fat, like pizza, will allow your body absorb this antioxidant much better. And extra cheese might even work better!
Bottom line: pizza helps your body absorb more lycopene
Enter wine into the equation. Specifically, Barbera.
Gianni Buonomo Barbera contains a naturally occurring compound called resveratrol. It is found in the skin of red grapes. There have been scientific claims, albeit mainly unsubstantiated, that resveratrol can actually help you become younger. Grapes grown in cooler climates have higher resveratrol levels than those from warmer climes. Our Barbera grapes come from the cool climate of the Sierra Foothills.
The facts are before you. Come to Gianni Buonomo on Friday and live a longer and happier life with great pizza and great wine.
Still puzzled how pizza and wine can do this?
Think of it like this: you may have depleted stores of lycopene and resveratrol and not even know it.
Don’t take that chance!
Come in on Friday to build-up those depleted stores.
