There is a popular saying that there are more old wine lovers in the world than old doctors. But seriously, studies have actually shown that moderate and controlled wine consumption can favorably influence the development of the cardiovascular system.

All because of the fact that the wine contains polyphenols. These substances and the alcohol content in wine lead to the degradation of the harmful LDL cholesterol. As blood flow improves, the risk of thrombosis decreases.

Moderate consumption of wine does not negatively affect health as long as it is monitored and not exaggerated. The general rule based on the WHO recommendation states that a healthy person, depending on gender and weight, can drink 1-2 glasses of wine 5 times a week without any negative long-term impact on their health.
