Are you looking to increase your body’s heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids? A new study suggests a glass or two of red wine may boost your levels of these “good” fats.
Researchers from Catholic University in Italy discovered that patients who consumed wine in moderation had higher concentrations of omega-3s compared to those who preferred other alcoholic beverages, such as beer or liquors.
Omega-3s have been scientifically shown to help lower your bad — or LDL — cholesterol, protect you from heart disease, lower your blood pressure and fuel your brain for optimum performance. These nutrients may also help you sleep better, improve your memory and ease the symptoms of PMS.
