The Positive Link Between Red Wine and Heart Disease.
How is red wine and heart disease linked together? The spectacular components of Red wine reduces heart disease. Amazing right?
Red Wine Key Components:
Antioxidants (flavonoids and non-flavonoids)
The many studies are showing that the high levels of antioxidants, in red wine, appear to help prevent arteries from becoming clogged with fat. They also increase the HDL (good) levels while reducing the LDL (bad) levels in cholesterol.
The resveratrol has proven to prevent damage to blood vessels, reduces "bad" cholesterol and prevents blood clots.
Dr's do state that for any of the components, that make red wine healthy, to prevent heart disease one needs to drink in moderation.
Moderation is defined as 2 glasses per day if you are male and 1 if you are female.
Drinking in moderation needs to be understood as drinking greater amounts will lead to other health risks.
I know this is not easy to do, especially when you have a bottle of your best staring right at you. I guess enjoying a wine that tastes better after it has breathed for a bit should be your choice when you are enjoying red wine by yourself.
Remember the old saying "a glass a day keeps the Dr. away"?
Enjoy your red wine knowing it is also making your heart healthy.
