I was wondering if non-alcoholic red wine contains similar cardiac protection characteristics as regular red wine. Thank you for your time.
Non-alcoholic wines are wines made of regular wine fermented to dryness, so no sugar is left. Then the alcohol is being removed through a filtration process without thermal or chemical treatment.
Though the fact of alcohol removal can result in somewhat weaker protective effects of this kind of wine, studies have reported that the cardioprotective effects of red wine are greater than those attributed to pure ethanol that is also present in white wine, beer, or spirits.
Recent studies demonstrated that the polyphenol resveratrol of red wine is believed to be responsible for protection against heart and vessel tissue damage and arteriosclerosis.
