Red wine is made from the dark grapes instead of lighter grapes. Red wine has been shown to have some health benefits when consumed responsibly. It has melatonin, which can help with sleep issues. It also has anti-oxidants, which is good to help slow down aging, as well as helps fight off certain types of cancer, like breast and prostate. It is also thought to help with brain and heart health. However, it is not high in iron. It is actually considered an iron absorption inhibitor. It actually reduces the body's ability to absorb the protein if it is consumed at the same time as you are eating the protein.
