New report reveals that drinking a glass of red wine before smoking helps protect your blood vessels against damages. Phenol, found in red wine, activates the formation of nitric oxide, which restores the coronary arteries.
This rejuvenation process protects the arteries from tobacco from inflammation and cell aging.
A study at the University of Saarland, Germany found that those who drank red wine before smoking experienced no cellular changes.
According to the lead research, Dr. Viktoria Schwarz, “The present evidence that the pro-inflammatory effects in nonsmokers with “occasional lifestyle smoking” could be prevented by red wine consumption.”
Dr. Schwarz stressed that the aim of the study is not to encourage smoking, but a study to identify mechanisms suitable to explore damage and protect the blood vessels in humans.
