Downing a bottle of wine or several beers a night won't do any good for you physical well-being. However moderate alcohol consumption has some proven health benefits. Check out our comparison below!
Benefits 
-  Can improve your libido
-  Helps prevent against the
    common cold
-  Can reduce your risk of diabetes
-  Moderate consumption can lower
   your risk of cardiovascular disease    by raising your HDL or 'good'
    cholesterol 
Negatives
-  High empty kilojoule value which
   can contribute to weight gain
-  Can cause poor control of blood
   pressure
-  Can increase triglyceride levels
-  Damaging for your brain and liver
-  Can react with medications
Given the pros and cons, ideally you should limit alcohol intake to 1-2 standard drinks a day and have at least 2 alcohol free days a week.
 
It may sound like a mixed message, but essentially alcohol can be your friend if consumed in moderation. Our pick is red wine. It has anti-ageing properties, high in antioxidants, and can help with the prevention of many diseases. Let's drink to that!

  • It is a common nutrient deficiency in Australians particularly for women, children, vegetarians and the elderly 
  • Iron can come from animal food sources (heme) such as meat, fish and poultry which are more easily absorbed than plant based sources (nonheme) such as whole grains and vegetables
