What are the best choices when it comes to alcoholic beverages?

Posted 06/28/2012 | By HealthCorps

There may seem to be a lot of confusing studies and scientific information regarding whether to enjoy alcoholic beverages. Currently the rule seems to be if you don’t drink, there’s no need to start. If you do drink, then one drink a day, some days of the week is fine and may offer some health benefits. Certainly the most recent studies on red wine suggest that resveratrol may indeed have ‘anti-aging” benefits.

So go “red rather than white’ when choosing wine.  Darker beer brews have more iron than lighter brews and stout can have less calories than lager, though you can choose ‘light beers’ now. Japanese research suggests that whiskey has more antioxidants than other hard liquor drinks.
