  1. Lower Risk of Heart Attack: In 2007, a US study (which covered a 16 year period) found that moderate drinkers who suffered with high blood pressure were 30% less likely to have a heart attack when compared to non-drinking participants. It is thought that the antioxidants in wine (known as polyphenols) may help protect the lining of your heart’s blood vessels; a polyphenol called resveratrol is considered an important ingredient to help lower cholesterol and prevents blood clots. 
  2. Improves Brain Health: Who said drinking kills your brain cells? In 2006, a study conducted at Columbia University found that brain function in non-drinkers deteriorated at a significantly quicker pace when compared to those who drank wine in moderate amounts on a regular basis. According to other recent studies, resveratrol is also thought to be a key ingredient in helping to preserve cognition in those suffering from Alzheimer’s disease. So, if you’re visiting Grandpa this Christmas, be sure to top up his glass, or even better, buy him this fantastic wine hamper of red, white and rose wine from Flowers24hours. 
  3. Reduces the Risk of Type 2 Diabetes: Think you’re at a high risk of developing type-2 diabetes? Then take note: In 2005, researchers in Amsterdam found that moderate drinkers had a 30% less chance of developing type-2 diabetes when compared to the non-drinkers (over a 12 year period). If you’re at risk and prone to reach for the biscuits and sweets, then maybe you should swap these for a glass of vino instead? This lovely gourmet country picnic basket could be a great alternative, containing red wine, cheese, crackers and olives – delicious!
  4. Extends Life Span: Always wanted to live forever? OK, we can’t promise you that, but research in Finland in 2007 revealed that wine drinkers have a 34% lower mortality rate in comparison to beer or spirit drinkers. So if you want to increase your life span, ask Santa for some wine in your Christmas stocking this year. 
  5. Reduces the Risk of Prostate Cancer: Men; listen up! Drinking wine can also help lower your risk of developing prostate cancer. The International Journal of Cancer has indicated that drinking one glass of wine a day can reduce your chances by half. So if you want to look after your prostate, take a leaf out of your European brothers’ books and think wine instead of beer. If you treat your loved one to Flowers24Hours ‘Flowers and Love’ wine, chocolate and spa gift set then you can enjoy a romantic bubble bath and a tipple together, which we’re sure will go down well!
