Which Alcohol Is Best for Your Liver?

"Less is best—too much alcohol of any kind contributes to liver disease

Prest cites the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) alcohol consumption guidelines: "Stick to no more than one glass a day for women and two a day for men,"

"Many studies show that any alcohol might cause liver problems. Alcohol risk is extremely difficult to estimate when you have fatty liver or viral hepatitis."

But Dr. Reau says that if you can't give up alcohol totally, there is one drink she might suggest you try over the others. 

"If you have a healthy liver," Dr. Reau explains, "red wine has been shown to have antioxidants and could impact your liver health."

The CDC advises against alcohol consumption for the following groups:

3. People with alcohol-interactive medical problems or drugs.

1. People who are pregnant or might be pregnant.

2. People younger than 21 years old.

"All alcohol damages the liver, no alcohol has been created that does not affect the liver".
