Red Wine or Champagne?

Winner: Tie

“Any booze in moderation has been shown to be beneficial to your health,” says Largeman-Roth. A small daily amount of alcohol (a 5-ounce glass of wine, say) can help thin your blood and make it less likely to clot. Champagne, like all wines, contains natural sugars, but it’s the lighter option, fizzing up at 90 calories a glass versus red wine’s 125. Red wine offers the advantage of resveratrol, an antioxidant that has been shown to lower the inflammation that can prematurely age cells, making it both heart-protective and anti-aging. So one glass of either has its advantages. Cheers!
