A new study finds positive effects of drinking wine daily. Only one glass of course.

It is always a good time when science delivers another reason to drink a glass of wine. This new research says that it does not matter if red or white wine.

A 2-year study of 224 patients found that red and white wine can improve glucose control, depending on alcohol metabolism and genetic profiling.

Drinking a glass of wine every day as part of a healthy diet can help patients with well-controlled type 2 diabetes improve cardiac health and manage cholesterol, according to an article published in Annals of Internal Medicine.

The participants of the study have been guided to follow a Mediterranean diet without caloric restriction.

After two years, patients who drank wine had decreased cardiometabolic risks compared to patients who drank mineral water. 

I feel sorry for those who had to drink water with their spaghetti for two years. Wine is just the much better match, as any Italian will confirm. 

Red wine had the edge over white wine in the study. Red wine drinkers experienced the most significant changes in lipid variables, suggesting the potential synergy of moderate alcohol intake with specific nonalcoholic wine constituents. 

The authors caution that the benefits of drinking wine should be weighed against potential risks when translated into clinical practice.
