Red wine Good for the Heart


If you enjoy a glass of red wine at the dining table, there’s good news. Recent studies have confirmed that red wine contains polyphenois which are powerful antioxidants. The polyphenols inhibit platelet formation, which reduces the risk of blood clots. They also slow cell deterioration. These factors can lead to a reduced risk of both heart disease and stroke.
An article published in March 2005 in the Journal of the American College of Surgeons stated that drinking a moderate amount of red wine daily is good for the heart. A study in the January 2006 issue of Stroke concurred that moderate alcohol consumption may reduce the risk of strokes caused by blockage of blood vessels.
