Consumption of red wine for a healthy lifestyle
Let's learn about the benefits of red wine consumption on cardiovascular disease (CVD)
Surely many of you will have heard about the benefits of red wine consumption on cardiovascular disease (CVD). But ... Which component of the wine gives this possible cardioprotective effect? What is the recommended consumption?
The CVD is the leading cause of death worldwide, it is important to note that every year more people die from CVD than from any other cause and it is estimated that in 2012 17.5 million people died, which represents a 31% of all deaths registered in the world. The antioxidants contained in red wine, called 'polyphenols', are the cause of the potential beneficial effects on CVD. The one that more protagonism is having in the last investigations is the denominated resveratrol, polifenol that is in great amounts in the skin of the grape.
Scientific evidence shows that both resveratrol and wine intake are associated with an improvement in blood lipid profile, control of fasting blood glucose levels and improvements in heart rate, suggesting that the intake of resveratrol through the consumption of wine could help to reduce the risk factors of CVD.
These associations are produced with low to moderate consumption of red wine. And here the second question arises, what is a low-moderate consumption?
