After celebrating the 4th of July with BBQs and parties, and with summer in full swing, I’ve been thinking as a doctor about the health aspects of alcohol. Wine, for instance, contains resveratrol, an antioxidant beneficial for men when consumed in moderation, about one glass per day. However, it’s important to note that the same benefits don’t apply to women. Any amount of alcohol increases the risk of breast cancer in women.

Additionally, as women age, we tend to become more sensitive to foods that trigger histamine release, with alcohol being a major culprit. This can lead to headaches, stuffiness, and flushed skin. If you do indulge occasionally, lighter-colored alcohols typically trigger less histamine production.

Here’s a tip I often share: when I attend gatherings and want to have a glass of wine, I take two capsules of Histoplex-AB biotics beforehand to help manage histamine sensitivity. It’s a simple trick that allows me to enjoy social occasions without discomfort.
