Alcohol – Good for the Heart, Good for the Mind, Study Says

We known this intuitively for a long time, right?

Anyway, the thing seems validated, now if we rely (and we have no reason not) on a study conducted by researchers at the University of Navarra, Spain, as reported by the internet magazine Gentside (following the study’s publication in the journal BMC Medicine).

This is a study that lasted seven years and was conducted among 5505 men and women aged 55 to 80 years .

During this period, various medical examinations and tests have been made to establish what their alcohol (mainly wine), their way of life and the evolution of their mental health.

The researchers came to the conclusion that people who consumed alcohol moderately, including wine, were all protected against heart disease than against depression.

In all individuals who drank between two and seven glasses of wine per week, there was a lower risk of depression.
