[5] Drink moderately and mainly red wine: The red wine produced in Sardinia, in particular the type known as “vino nero” due to its dark colour, contains high doses of polyphenol.

If you want to improve your overall health, forget about complicated rules. In the field of business, successful entrepreneurs know that the best results are obtained by concentrating energies on essential areas. Similarly, when it comes to enhancing our vitality, we will be better off if we acquire a few effective and pleasurable habits.
