Plastic Surgery Blog: Health News about WinePosted on June 5, 2017
In recent years the advantages of red wine for health has been reported in many different studies. According to a recent online article Spanish researchers have reported that red wine polyphenols which are antioxidant compounds can lower blood pressure; but, the actual effects of the ethanol which is the alcohol in wine and polyphenols on blood pressure in human beings are still not clear. Based on a study conducted with men, the researchers surmised that wine with alcohol increased nitric oxide a chemical that relaxes blood vessels in the bloodstream. They wrote that alcohol on the other hand seem to counter act the effects of the nonalcoholic red wine. The study is not conclusive as the participants were all men. This study demonstrates the power of polyphenols, says Angela Ginn, registered dietitian and spokeswoman for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. However, she adds, it does bring up the questionable effect of alcohol on blood pressure — but, she says, more studies are needed to follow up on the benefits of non-alcoholic wine. Studies have proven that wine can be beneficial to our health and some studies report a marked improvement to the waistline as well. Most medical experts agree that the moderate consumption of red wine is good for the health and is good for the health and well-being of the adult population. While many women drink a glass wine daily it is important to disclose drinking habits to Dr. Kim when considering plastic surgery or other cosmetic procedures. This includes procedures from breast augmentation up to and including a facelift. It is not recommended that patients drink wine prior to surgery or after surgery during the recovery period. Patients should consult directly with Dr. Kim to learn when it is okay for them to resume drinking wine.
