If you like to finish your night off with a drink, you'll be glad to hear it could be good for your health. For example, if you like beer, a Swedish study published in 2015 found woman who drank beer monthly or weekly had a 30 percent decreased risk of heart attack versus non-beer-drinking-ladies.
If you prefer to have a bit of wine before bed, a study has linked having one five-ounce glass to red wine per night with higher HDL, or "good", cholesterol levels.
Additionally, it's no secret that alcohol can help you unwind, and de-stressing is always good for the heart. And one more thing, if having a nightcap means you skip dessert, it even could save you some calories.
One important point though, remember to drink in moderation.
