American Heart Association says Non-alcoholic red wine may help reduce High Blood Pressure

 

Red wine’s polyphenols uninhibited by alcohol seem to be the blood pressure reducing element.

American Heart AssociationDallas, TX – Men with high risk for heart disease had lower blood pressure after drinking non-alcoholic red wine every day for four weeks, according to a new study in the American Heart Association journal Circulation Research.

Non-alcoholic red wine increased participants’ levels of nitric oxide, which helped decrease both systolic and diastolic blood pressure, researchers said. Nitric oxide is a molecule in the body that helps blood vessels relax and allows more blood to reach your heart and organs.
