Study: Drinking Wine May Have an Added Heart Benefit

Drinking wine may have an added heart benefit over other forms of alcohol, according to a new study.

Researchers in Italy studied surveys filled out by over one thousand adults from three different areas of Western Europe.

They found while drinking moderate amounts of alcohol had a health benefit, those who mostly drank wine had the highest levels of omega-three fatty acids.

They suspect compounds in wine trigger the body to produce more of the healthy fat.

Past studies have shown omega-three fatty acids can protect the heart from disease.
