Recent studies have prompted a variety of publications to take notice of the health benefits associated with whiskey and vodka when consumed in small quantities.

Whiskey and vodka boast many more advantages than simply assisting in the stress relief of their enjoyers. In moderation, they can promote good heart health, aid in weight loss and even fight bad breath.

HEALTH BENEFITS OF WHISKEY

Helps Weight Loss

Whiskey contains no carbohydrates and will not affect blood sugar levels. It is also free of fat and cholesterol, so it is a suitable drink choice for diabetics or those watching their weight. Drink it neat and avoid sugary cocktails.

Reduces The Risk Of Cancer

The antioxidants in whiskey, particularly ellagic acid, can reduce the risk of developing cancer. The acid fights the unstable atoms that aid in rapid cell replication and breaks down the harmful free radicals present in our body.

Treats Cold and Flu
