Brief Answer: Excess of everything is bad. Detailed Answer: Hi, Alcohol has been said to be beneficial to prevent heart problems in many studies. But there is no definitive evidence. Only white and red wine are said to be beneficial but only in moderated doses. Most important problem is that people start drinking in low doses for better heart but they land into addiction leading to liver problems , hypertryglyceridemia , accelerated atherosclerosis causing increase risk of heart attacks. I personally don't recommend alcohol for a better heart. You have several well known ways to make your heart better. Adopt them. This question only arises because we try to find excuses to take alcohol. Avoid Alcohol , Stay Healthy. I hope I am able to solve your query , still if you have any query ask me.
