Why is drinking alcohol in moderation good for the heart?


The phrase “alcohol is good for your health” is often heard, but that does not imply that, by listening to it very often, it is completely true. In fact, the scientific community has debated this topic since immemorial time and, and although they have had some achievements with their studies, there is still the controversy about these results and the difference that separates the community into two blocks. Undoubtedly, the benefit that is most heard is that it ensures good health and function of the heart by ingesting alcoholic beverages in moderation, but the big question is: how much is moderate?

According to experts, the ideal is to have 2 drinks / cups a day if you are under 65 and reduce that amount in half (1) if you pass that age. A drink or a glass a day is equivalent to 350ml of beer, 148ml of wine or 44ml of any other distilled beverage.

Among the many benefits of wine we can find are reduction in risk of cardiovascular diseases, strokes, diabetes, stones (stones) in the gallbladder and different heart symptoms.

The heart especifically benefits from the antioxidants we can find in wines and, in general, helps our entire cardiovascular system. Statistics show that active people who consume moderately wines are 50% less likely to develop heart disease than a person who spends all day in front of the television.

In conclusion, drinking alcohol moderately will bring us health benefits in the long run as long as we do not fall into the excess. Although, as everyone says, it is true that alcohol in large amounts can harm health, leading to pancreatitis, cirrhosis, hypertension, different types of cancers, depression and alcoholism. Remember: alcohol is good if taken in moderation, but it does not mean that, if you do not drink, you need to start. You do not need alcohol to lead a healthy life.
