An Australian doctor and vineyard owner says he has created the world’s healthiest drop which reduces the risk of heart attack as you drink it. As the Shiraz… runs through the body, it cleans the blood vessels and helps keep arteries free of fatty deposits.

Medical doctor Phillip Norrie says it is true, insisting that his newly-created reds and whites act as a ‘vascular pipe-cleaner’, ensuring that fatty deposits in blood vessels known as atherosclerotic plaque are washed away.

Another important element of red wine are procyanidins, which help to reduce blood pressure, lower cholesterol and protect against hardening of the arteries. Two wine-growing regions which boast high concentrations of procyanidins are the Nuoro province in Sardinia (which produces the Cannonau grape), and Madiran in the Pyrenees. Wines from these areas contain up to ten times more beneficial compounds than their counterparts from Australia, South Africa and the United States.

Those who drink one or two glasses of wine a day have a reduced risk of developing blocked arteries in the legs. Wine improves circulation, dilates blood vessels and raises good cholesterol.
