To many of us, the ideal amount of red wine to have everyday is probably leaning towards a bottle, but researchers have apparently nailed the actual ideal amount to consume to keep us alive and kicking.
Alas, it's not the bottle we dream of, but it's not "you should NEVER EVER drink wine," either.
Scientists in Israel gathered up a group of 224 people that has type 2 disbetes. The participants had to follow a strict diet plan for two years, and opt to either drink a glass of water, white wine or red wine each night with dinner.
And the results were actually quite shocking!
The red wine drinkers were noted to have significantly increased their levels of good HDL cholesterol, and both wine drinker were found to have better sleep records than the water drinkers.
So, the perfect amount of wine to drink everyday is a glass with dinner! Sounds good enough for us!
