A study from the Den-Gurion University from Israel with 224 people who didn’t drink wine aimed to show the benefits of red wine. People were divided into two groups. One of the groups drank 150 ml of wine a day while the other only drank water. This study lasted two years and had surprising results. For those who drank red wine the levels of HDL cholesterol increased and the percentage of beneficial cholesterol was better compared to those who only drank water. Besides that, those who drank wine slept better than the others.
