We’ve often heard that a glass of wine a day can reduce the risk of heart disease, especially for middle-aged and older adults. In fact, international comparisons show that there is a lower prevalence of heart disease in “wine drinking countries” than found in “beer drinking countries.” This might be because wine, specifically red wine, contains antioxi- dants and polyphenols. One polyphenol in particular, resveratrol is credited with reducing inflammation and damaging chemicals in the body. Although alcohol itself thins the blood and helps blood vessels expand, resveratrol is thought to add an extra punch in helping prevent blood clots, relax blood vessel walls, and prevent the oxidation of LDL cholesterol, otherwise known as the bad cholesterol.
