Study finds moderate red wine drinking may be good to gut health

Study finds moderate red wine drinking may be good to gut health”

Le Roy's team found that red wine improved the number of different bacteria in the microbiome, compared with those who didn't drink wine.

They found that red wine drinkers had a healthier composition of flora living in their intestines than the other participants. "But it is not so healthy that if you don't drink red wine already that you should start now".

TIME to raise a glass to better gut health?

The study, printed Wednesday within the magazine Gastroenterology and led by means of researchers with King's College London, discovered that pink wine drinkers had "increased gut microbiota diversity" - an indication of good gut well being - when put next to those that opted for white wine, beer or spirits as an alternative.

The team answered for genetics and familial traits in having a naturally healthy gut microbe pattern by showing that one of the twins that consumed more red wine had a healthier gut microbe pattern compared to their co-twin that consumed less of red wine.

The authors of the study explain, "While our results are very consistent, as an observational study - where we see if factors are associated more than by chance - we can not prove causality".

In a study of nearly 3,000 drinkers in the USA, the United Kingdom, and the Netherlands, researchers explored the effects of beer, cider, and both red and white wines on the gut microbiome, collectively the types of bacteria that live within our gastrointestinal system. After observing all of these factors, the examiners still saw an organization between bacterial diversity and drinking red wine.

The researchers were able to confirm their findings in three other groups in Britain, the Netherlands and the United States, which brought the total number of participants to almost 3 000. She said, "Polyphenols are also available from a range of other foods besides red wine".

Fruits and vegetables are very rich in polyphenols, which are; in turn full of antioxidants that fight of cell damage.

"In addition, plants are our only source of dietary fibre, which is the favourite food for the microbes that live in our gut".

Past researches have advises that polyphenols may help shield against arrange of cardiometabolic conditions, such as obesity, type 2 diabetics or heart disease.

The researchers explain that a specific component of red wine - polyphenols are possibly responsible for the benefits observed in these individuals. This elaborates that the writers can not confirm that is the red wine causing this beneficial effect on the microbiota.

"Although we looked an association between red wine drinkers and the gut microbiota diversity, drinking red wine rarely such as once in every two weeks which is probably be enough to observe and effect", says Prof.

"If you must choose one alcoholic drink today, red wine is the one to pick as it seems to potentially exert a beneficial on you and your gut microbes", she added. Finally the authors have suggested that alcohol should be drank with moderation.
