12 Shocking Health Benefits Of Whiskey (You Won’t Believe #9!)
No matter if your preference is for Jim Beam, Jack Daniels, Fireball, or Wild Turkey, almost everyone has a favorite whiskey, even if they won’t admit it. Did you know that the demand for whiskey is outpacing the available supply over the past 7 years? Whiskey used to be the drink of cowboys, construction workers, and other badass types; recently, however, it has become more and more common to see people from all walks of life enjoying a shot of whiskey after work.
Of course, there are always critics who don’t enjoy whiskey. They will label it an “old man’s drink,” or tell you that it has such as strong taste that it’s hard to imagine anyone liking it. Your mother might have even told you that if you enjoyed the taste of whiskey, you must be an alcoholic! What if we told you that you can enjoy that double shot of whiskey and not feel one bit guilty about it? Even more shocking, what if we told you that whiskey (in moderation, of course) is even good for you?
It’s true! Print this article and give it to your mother so you can drink with a clear conscience. Now this doesn’t give you permission to drink half the bottle after work every night, but a shot or two not only will not do you any harm, it’s downright good for you.
Keep reading and find out how a shot of your favorite brand can enhance your health. Cheers!
1. Supports Healthy Brain Function
Okay, so everyone knows that if you drink too much with your friends Jack and Jim, your brain will become whiskey-logged. However, did you know that a 2003 study found that drinking moderate amounts of whiskey reduced your chances of developing Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia? Wow. If that isn’t a reason to start drinking whiskey, tell us what is!
2. Helps Avoid Weight Gain
Although whisky might not make you lose 20 or 30 pounds — especially if you drink too much and you keep munching on those free appetizers at the bar — but when compared to almost every other mixed drink and beer, whiskey is a low-calorie, low-sugar choice. This means you can have your whiskey shot after work without having to hit the gym and work off a beer belly later.
3. A Safe Bet for Diabetics
If you have diabetes, you can enjoy a shot or two of whiskey and not have to worry about it. Whiskey is very low-sugar, which makes this one drink that you can indulge in and forget about your blood sugar level for a while. There are not too many times in this world when diabetics get to do that, so enjoy!
