Non-Alcoholic Red Wine Significantly Reduces Blood Pressure – Study

September 6, 2012: 12:00 AM EST
Non-alcoholic red wine turns out to be a healthier choice for wine drinkers with high blood pressure, according to new research. The study involved 67 men who had diabetes and at least three risk factors for heart disease, including hypertension. After each of three four-week phases – drinking regular wine, non-alcoholic wine and gin while eating a normal diet – the participants were tested. The red wine had very little impact on blood pressure, while gin had no impact. But after drinking non-alcoholic red wine, blood pressure dropped by about 6mmHg in systolic and 2mmHg in diastolic blood pressure. The decrease in blood pressure could over time reduce the risk of heart disease by 14 percent and stroke by 20 percent.
