Take Two: Red Wine vs. White Wine
Find out how these two compare in nutritional benefits.
The antioxidants found in wine can vary widely depending on the year and region in which the wine was produced. However, two other beneficial components of wine remain relatively consistent: potassium, which helps maintain fluid balance in the body, and alcohol, which may help raise "good" HDL cholesterol, reduce risk of blood clots, and lower blood pressure. The key to obtaining any of wine's benefits is enjoying your favorite in moderation (no more than one and two glasses per day for women and men, respectively).
