(OrganicJar) A major new finding shows moderate alcohol intake is associated with higher levels of omega-3 fatty acids in plasma and red blood cells. The alcohol acts like a 'trigger', boosting the amount of omega-3 fatty acids in our body. It does this by influencing the metabolism of essential polyunsaturated fatty acids, as omega-3. The study concluded that wine does a better job than other alcoholic drinks due to its polyphenols. These are naturally occurring compounds contained in a different variety of food and beverages, such as wine. Due to their strong antioxidant activity, they are able to reduce oxidation processes caused by free radicals. Omega-3 fatty acids, mainly derived from fish, are considered as protective against coronary heart disease and sudden cardiac death, thus their high blood concentration is definitely good for our health. Moderate drinking is defined by one drink a day for women and two for men. Source: science daily
