Wine

Wine doesn't just taste great, it's good for you. Studies have shown that red wine beats white in health benefits due to the compound reservatrol. Reservatrol has been linked to reducing the risk for certain cancers, preventing age-related memory decline, inhibiting weight gain, and protecting your pearly whites. 

For those who are white wine fans, stick with the drier whites like Rieslings of Sauvignon Blanks. They have their own health benefits. A study published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry found that antioxidants in white wine are similar to that in olive oil—boosting heart function.
