Red Wine Safely Improves Cholesterol Balance, Reduces Cardiovascular Risks

October 29, 2015: 12:00 AM EST
A two-year multinational study has determined that drinking a glass of wine each night could help people with type 2 diabetes better manage their cholesterol and cardiac health. Researchers said red wine was found to be not only safe, it was superior in improving overall metabolic profiles by modestly improving the lipid profile and increasing good (HDL) cholesterol and apolipoprotein A1 (a major constituent of HDL). It also decreased the ratio between total cholesterol and HDL cholesterol. Diabetics are more susceptible to developing cardiovascular diseases than the general population and have lower levels of "good" cholesterol.
