Good news ladies! It seems a glass of wine a day may actually keep the doctor away according to a new study
Good news ladies! It seems a glass of wine a day may actually keep the doctor away, according to a new study.
A new study suggests wine can stop you from gaining weight and may even help you lose a few pounds, plus those who drink wine are 30 per cent less likely to develop diabetes.
‘Light-to-moderate alcohol intake, especially of wine, may be more likely to protect against, rather than promote, weight gain,’ say researchers from the Navarro University in Spain.
Due to the notion that all alcohol plays a part in weight gain, rather than a weight loss, experts now want to carry out further research on the role alcohol plays in people’s diet.
‘While it is common for individuals, especially women, to state that they avoid all alcohol consumption because they do not want to gain weight, data is very limited on this subject,’ say experts.
Research has also found that moderate drinkers have been found to be between 16% to 25% less likely to develop metabolic syndrome, which makes a person more likely to have a stroke or a coronary artery disease.
So reschedule ladies night – with these new found health benefits there seems no reason not have that occasional glass of wine.
