Red Wine for Your Heart This Holiday Season

Posted Dec 23 2010 6:08am

Happy holidays everyone! I’m in a festive mood this morning because I found a great reason to enjoy some red wine over the holidays…and all year long. You may not know it, but red wine is high in fiber which can help keep your heart healthy.

Research published in the journal Nutrition found that antioxidants and fiber in the Tempranillo grape were more effective at lowering blood pressure and cholesterol than other sources of dietary fiber like oats or psyllium.

As always, enjoy alcohol in moderation! Mmm…I think its about time for me to whip up another batch of homemade sangria.
