Bubbly Good For Your Heart?

December 31, 2009, 5:10 PM by Kelli Grant

As you pop open the Champagne and raise a glass to the New Year, you may also be doing some good for your heart. A new European study shows all it takes is about two glasses.

It isn't the bubbly talking...the study involved healthy volunteers between 20 and 65-years-old.

Researchers split them into two groups. One group was given 12 and a half ounces of Champagne... the other was given the same amount of a different alcoholic drink. Blood and urine samples were then collected. Researchers found nitric oxide levels, which help control blood pressure, were elevated in Champagne drinkers. And researchers found other health benefits.

"Champagne is derived from grapes. And grapes also contain polyphenols. Polyphenols are a type of antioxidant and when you ingest them, they go in the bloodstream, they reduce inflammation in the body and they also clear out your blood vessels from deadly debris, such as free radicals,” said Registered Dietitian Tara Harwood of Cleveland Clinic.

The study says those two glasses may also help decrease both blood pressure and the likelihood of blood clots forming.
But too much alcohol can wreak havoc on your heart....causing an irregular heart beat which when prolonged can lead to stroke.
