Prevents Heart Disease

Your nightly glass of red wine could keep your heart healthy, according to the American Heart Association. Moderate alcohol use can prevent atherosclerosis, or fatty deposits that form on the walls of blood vessels and often cause blood clots, which can lead to potentially fatal heart attacks.

Though moderate intake of any type of alcohol can prevent atherosclerosis, red wine’s effect on the development of the disease is stronger in comparison; AHA’s studies have also suggested that red wine prevents coronary heart disease and strokes more so than any other type of alcohol.
