Study Review Confirms Wine Benefit for Women

Study Review Confirms Wine Benefit for Women

August 03 : A review team from the International Scientific Forum on Alcohol Research has found that regular moderate intake of wine and alcohol after menopause helps maintain bone strength, confirming the recent findings of earlier Research concluding that one or two glasses of wine a day worked well as drugs at maintaining bone strength.

The experts, who analyzed a recent study by the University of Oregon, also concluded that abstaining from drinking led to a higher risk of developing osteoporosis whereas modest drinking could work just as well as some drugs, suggested the review, which was published in the Menopause journal and reported in several media including Daily Telegraph

The result of the study was published in a July issue of delWine:
Middle aged women may benefit from a Glass of Wine

The latest analysis, which adds to the conclusions of previous studies, reviewed the study of 40 healthy postmenopausal women aged around 56.  It found that women who drank about two small glasses of wine- the equivalent of 19gms of alcohol a day - had a drop in the loss of old bone.

This in turn improved the balance with their new bones and helped maintain strength. Later, their “bone turnover” improved after the women were asked to stop drinking. A day after they began drinking again, their bone turnover was once again reduced.

One reviewer said: “The results suggest an effect of moderate alcohol consumption similar to the effects of bisphosphonates.” Thousands of postmenopausal women take this drug daily to help combat thinning bones.

However, as before, the Researchers warned against drinking more to protect bones because excessive alcohol increased the risk of fractures as well as increasing the risk of falls. Medical experts have termed osteoporosis as a silent disease because there are no known symptoms prior to a bone fracture.  Once a person has broken a bone, the risk of breaking dramatically rises as the so-called fragility fracture is felt.
