Numerous researches have revealed that people who drink wine particularly red wine moderately may be less likely to develop heart diseases such as atherosclerosis, coronary artery disease and heart attack than people who do not drink at all. In addition, there is some evidence that red wine may raise the high density lipoprotein (HDL) or “Good Cholesterol”. Red wine contains antioxidants called flavonoids that promote a good cardiovascular health. Moreover, wine also contains a substance known as resveratrol, which may reduce blood clot formation.
However, it is important to realize that there is a fine line between risky drinking and healthy drinking. Men should have no more than 2 drinks (8 ounces of wine) per day, while women should have no more than 1 drink (4 ounces of wine) per day. Excess drinking may lead to high blood pressure, obesity, stroke, swelling of pancreas, heart failure, palpitation, irregular heart rhythms and liver disease. Moreover, alcohol abuse is also associated with cancers of the mouth, throat, voice box, breast, liver, colon and rectum.
To maintain a good cardiovascular health, you can also use a dietary supplement that helps maintain a healthy heart and circulation. Kwai HEART & IMMUNE 1-A-DAY is a popular brand on the market that contains vitamins A, C and E, and Kwai garlic in its formulation. Antioxidant vitamins help maintain a good cardiovascular health, while Kwai garlic helps keep cholesterol levels normal. This supplement is suitable for diabetics and is free from salt, lactose, yeast and gluten. Take one tablet daily with cold liquid.
