Wine in hampers 'has several health benefits'
Published on 15/11/2011

Those planning to buy hampers containing wine for friends and family will be doing their health a lot of good.

According to Stuart Walton, chairman of the Circle of Wine Writers, there is an extensive list of health benefits linked to wine consumption, so much so that the pros outweigh the cons.

He highlighted the positive effect it has on one's cardiovascular system by reducing bad cholesterol and the inhibiting effect on the development of Alzheimer's.

"It can also be very good in preventing diseases of the digestive system such as gastric and peptic ulcers," Mr Walton said.

The expert added that it is important to consume wine in moderation due to the effect excess alcohol can have on a person's liver.

An expert told the Daily Express recently that red wine in particular can deliver several health benefits to those who drink within the recommended limits, while champagne can be beneficial due to its low sugar content.
