A new study finds that women who drink a low to moderate amount of alcohol are at a reduced risk of stroke.

Women who drank a glass of wine a day were 21% less likely to have a stroke, according a report in Stroke: Journal of the American Heart Association.

But before you fill up a second glass, the study also found that drinking more did not give women an added advantage to reducing their risk.

The study spanned more than two-decades and involved close to 84,000 women.
