It has been known for years that wine consumption can have positive effects on health, “provided it is done in moderation”. However, there is medical evidence that it is not the alcohol that contains health-promoting properties, but the antioxidants and bioactive substances present in grapes. And they are also present in non-alcoholic wine. That is why alcohol-free wine is healthy, without contraindications or moderation.

Grapes contain a large amount of polyphenols, which are responsible for their characteristic colour, aroma and texture. They also have recognised beneficial properties for the organism. It has been scientifically proven that they have a strong protective effect on cells by inhibiting cell-damaging agents such as toxins and free radicals. Resveratrol, for example, is one of the grape polyphenols for which there is scientific evidence of its role in protecting arteries and cardiovascular health.

Alcohol-free wine is healthy because it has all the polyphenols of traditional wine, but not a drop of alcohol.

Beware of “moderation”

The benefits of polyphenols have been certified in both grape intake and red wine. However, the Spanish Heart Foundation stresses that their positive health effects are maintained only with very small daily amounts of wine. Beyond that minimum amount, the harmful effects of alcohol consumption outweigh the benefits of grapes.

In fact, recent research from the UK’s Anglia Ruskin University, published in Clinical Nutrition, has gone further: no amount of alcohol is considered “healthy”. Forget the “in moderation” label that is so often associated with “health”. Alcohol is never healthy, in moderation means that if you drink very little, it doesn’t do as much harm.

More than 440,000 adults were recruited and asked to track their drinking habits – which included beer, cider, wine and spirits – for seven years. The researchers found that drinking even moderate amounts of beer, cider and spirits increases the risk of disease and overall mortality. This was particularly true for cardiovascular, coronary and cerebrovascular diseases (such as stroke) and cancer. The only healthy result came from the consumption of red and white wine, which was shown to reduce the risk of heart disease. But from what we have seen, that is due to the bioactive compounds in grapes.

You can achieve the same result, or better, with non-alcoholic wine. Better because it protects arteries and veins, but also avoids the toxins and calories associated with alcohol. Alcohol-free wine is healthy, always.

Alcohol-free wine: all the polyphenols without any contraindications

A new study published in the journal Circulation Research provides interesting results on the effect of non-alcoholic red wine consumption in people at high cardiovascular risk.

The study was carried out at the Hospital Clínic in Barcelona: the effect of gin, wine and non-alcoholic wine consumption on blood pressure in 67 men with diabetes mellitus or cardiovascular risk factors was analysed. They ranged in age from 55 to 75 years.

The study volunteers followed the same diet for four weeks, with one difference: one group drank non-alcoholic red wine, another alcoholic wine and the rest gin, always in moderate amounts. The results showed that those who drank alcohol-free wine reduced hypertension and their risk of heart attack and stroke by up to 20%.

On the other hand, the reduction in those who drank wine with alcohol was not significant. Those who drank gin did not achieve any reduction in blood pressure. In other words, those who drank non-alcoholic wine had by far the greatest improvement. Because non-alcoholic wine is healthy.

How is non-alcoholic wine made?

Alcohol-free wine is healthy and has all the nutrients and taste of traditional wine because of the way it is made. It uses the inverted rotating cone system, the only one capable of reducing the alcohol content in wine with zero loss of aroma, flavour and nutritional properties. This is how some of the non-alcoholic wines you will find at The Blue Dolphin Store are made.

Most importantly, non-alcoholic wine is the enemy of moderation. As it also tends to have a lower sugar content, it will not only be good for your health, but also for your figure.

Enjoy without moderation… We toast to your health!
