Non-alcoholic red wine might decrease blood pressure better than wine with alcohol

September 6, 2012

The research compared 67 men with diabetes or multiple risk factors for cardiovascular diseases.

Each person consumed either non-alcoholic red wine, red wine, or gin. The most significant decrease in blood pressure was with the non-alcoholic red wine.

Researchers concluded the alcohol in red wine weakens its ability to lower blood pressure. But chemicals still present after alcohol is removed from wine are likely the beneficial elements.
