New York, NY (PRWEB) September 13, 2012
Many studies in the past have touted the heart-healthy benefits of moderately consuming red wine. A new study suggests that the non-alcoholic version may actually carry more benefits, but those within the addiction field urge caution for those alcoholics in recovery.
A four week study published in Circulation Research focused on approximately 70 men with diabetes or 3 or more risk factors related to heart disease. The men in this study were divided into groups that consumed either non-alcoholic red wine or moderate amounts of alcohol, including red wine and gin. To the surprise of researchers, they discovered that the blood pressure of the men who drank non-alcoholic red wine went down to numbers that actually lowered their risk of heart disease by fourteen percent and stroke by twenty percent.
While the exact mechanism at work in the study isn’t known, it’s theorized that powerful antioxidants, called polyphenols, may raise the levels of nitric oxide in the body, thus lowering blood pressure.
“We encourage individuals in the treatment field, and those in recovery, to carefully consider the implications of this new data,” begins a spokesperson for Mountainside Drug Rehab and Alcohol Treatment Center. “Professionals within the addiction field strongly urge sober individuals to stay away from non-alcoholic beverages since they can be triggers that can lead to wanting to drink beverages containing alcohol. Fortunately, research like this shows that a healthy lifestyle doesn’t have to include alcohol use. That’s good news for the millions of individuals suffering from the effects of alcohol abuse and are in recovery.”
