Does white wine have any health benefits?

White wine, like any alcohol, has its impact on health. White wine has many of the same health benefits attributed to red wine, it just gets it done with different substances. Moderate consumption of any alcohol has potential positive impacts on health. Benefits of moderate alcohol consumption include the following:
  • Reduces your risk of developing heart disease
  • Reduces your risk of dying of a heart attack
  • Possibly reduces your risk of strokes, particularly ischemic strokes
  • Lowers your risk of gallstones
  • Possibly reduces your risk of diabetes
Moderate alcohol consumption is considered to be one drink/day for women and up to two drinks/day for men. All health care professionals will caution that if you do not drink, do not start as the risks associated with excess alcohol consumption outweigh the benefits.
