Surprising health benefits of whiskey
Whiskey is a distilled alcoholic beverage that is made of some type of grain mash. Whiskey can be made from barley, wheat, rye, corn, buckwheat, or other types of grains. Whiskey is stored and aged in cask barrels which determine the quality and flavor.
Drinking whiskey, in moderation, can come with health benefits. Some of the benefits include:
Avoiding Weight Gain- Whiskey is a low-calorie alcohol. It is significantly lower in calories compared to mixed cocktails and beer. Enjoy a glass without feeling the guilt.
Boosting Heart Health- Not only will whiskey reduce the risk of blood clots, but it will lower your stroke and heart attack risk as well. Whiskey contains antioxidants that stop cholesterol from clogging your arteries.
Fighting Cancer - Whiskey is rich in antioxidants, particularly one known as ellagic acid. This antioxidant stops your body’s DNA from coming in contact with cancer-causing compounds, reducing the risk of carcinogens forming. It can also protect your body from chemotherapy, and will reduce oxidation in your body.
Improving Brain Health - A popular study done in 2003 discovered that drinking whiskey reduces your risk of Alzheimer’s and dementia.
Safe for Diabetics- Whiskey is low in sugar and calories, making it safe for diabetics to drink.
