Red wine, made with the skin of the grape, contains more of certain antioxidants than white, which is made after the skins are removed. One powerful antioxidant in red wine, resveratrol, may help prevent cancer and protect the heart by blocking damage from free radicals and reducing inflammation. But consuming any alcohol in moderation can raise HDL ("good" cholesterol), prevent artery damage caused by LDL ("bad" cholesterol), and reduce the formation of blood clots. So both wines offer benefits—in responsible amounts.
