How moderate consumption of dry red wine can improve your health, even if you are diabetic or pre-diabetic.
Tired of “Diabetic DON’Ts?” Here’s a Diabetic DO!
Enjoy a glass of good wine!
Yes, even if you are diabetic or pre-diabetic, you can enjoy alcohol in moderation – especially dry, red wine.
Based on recent, serious scientific studies and evidence-based trials, The Diabetic Wine Lover’s Guide is designed as a communication tool for you and your health care practitioner. Together you can determine if dry, red wine should become part of your diet. Here are three reasons why that glass of wine might be good for you, according to the author:
- “One reason is that the amount of residual sugar in dry table wines is nil: a 3.5 ounce standard serving of dry table wine has, on average, less than a gram of sugar.
- A second reason is that other constituents of wine, such as resveratrol and flavonoids, actually protect against diseases, including cardiac diseases, which diabetics are more prone to than the general population.
- A third reason is that the alcohol in a glass of wine actually acts to lower both your blood sugar level and your blood pressure.”
