The popularity of wine has been on a steady increase for quite some time with one of the top reasons many consumers giving is their health. Many studies have shown that wines, and especially the reds, are full of healthy compounds that can help our bodies in many ways when consumed in moderation.
A new study from Vienna is bringing yet another good reason to enjoy a glass of red wine a day for many who suffer from Type 2 diabetes. Research has shown that the antioxidants found in red wine can be just as effective as drugs in helping control the symptoms of diabetes. The polyphenols have shown to be just as effective as the major drug rosiglitazone in treating diabetes.
While no patient should take matters into their own hands and consume only red wine without consulting their physician, it can be an effective way to augment treatment. Just as with anything patients with Type 2 diabetes should consult their doctor and remember that the study shows that the wine must be consumed in moderation in order to be effective and healthy for you.
For those who cope with Type 2 diabetes red wine can be an enjoyable way to improve your health. This can be a real gift, and for other wine gifts such as Prairie Wine by Will Bullas check out all the wine accessories at Rhino Wine Gear.
