Drinking red wine in moderation may prolong your life

wine-splash-1-1283144-mThere have been a lot of reports over the years claiming some red wine may improve your health reports the Examiner. Actually, enjoying some red wine in moderation may prolong your life, reports Doctor’s Health Press on Jan. 2, 2014. It has been found in a recent study that moderate drinkers have been living longer than people who abstain from drinking.

Over a 20 year period a team of researchers from the University of Texas followed over 1,800 volunteers who were between the ages of 55 to 65 at the outset of the study. The research team studied both moderate drinkers, abstainers, and heavy drinkers in their clinical trial. The study also compared teetotalers, or people who had drank in the past but who no longer drink, and those who had a history of never drinking alcohol, with moderate drinkers and heavy drinkers. Moderate drinkers were considered to be those who had one to three drinks a day, while heavy drinkers were considered to be those who had four or more drinks per day.

The results showed at the end of the study period, slightly over 30 percent of the teetotalers survived, in comparison to survival by 40 percent of the heavy drinkers and almost 60 percent of the moderate drinkers. The researchers concluded that although you still should approach alcohol drinking with caution, it appears it’s okay to enjoy a glass of red wine with your evening meal. Red wine could help lower cholesterol levels and have a positive effect on heart health.

Research has indicated that moderate consumption of alcohol improves cardiovascular health, reports Yale New Haven Hospital. In 1992 researchers at Harvard included moderate alcohol consumption as one of the “eight proven ways to reduce coronary heart disease risk.” But, research has suggested that red wine is specifically the most beneficial to your heart health. The cardioprotective effect of red wine has been attributed to antioxidants present in the skin and seeds of red grapes.

More recently researchers have found that moderate red wine consumption may be beneficial to more than just your heart health. One study has found that the antioxidant resveratrol, which is found in abundance in the skin of red grapes, may inhibit tumor development in some cancers. Another study has indicated that resveratrol helps in the formation of nerve cells, which experts think may be helpful in the treatment of neurological diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. So, if you feel like it, enjoying some red wine in moderation may actually help you live a healthier and longer life.
