Health Benefits Of Drinking Alcohol Daily

According to Healthline", Before you start a petition to replace the office water cooler with a beer keg, let's be clear. Alcohol is only healthy in smaller amounts about 1 drink a day for women (5 ounces of wine, 12 ounces of beer, or 1.5 ounces of liquor) and 2 for men. After that, the benefits get hazier and the risks increase. However, here are the health benefits of drinking alcohol daily.

Prevents Kidney Stones

Regular moderate drinkers are less likely to get kidney stones 41% less likely for those who drink beer, and 33% for wine drinkers. Part of the reason may be that alcohol, like caffeine in coffee and tea, makes you pee more often. That helps clear out the tiny crystals that form stones. Drink too much, though, and you can get dehydrated, and that increases your risk of kidney stones along with other health problems.

Makes You More Social

Good friends are good for you. And people who have a drink or two together rather than, say, sodas are likely to spend more time talking. They're also more likely to share smiles and keep everyone involved in the conversation. But don't overdo it.

Gives Your Sex Life a Boost

Intimacy helps you deal with stress, and a little alcohol may move things along. In one review, women who had one or two glasses of red wine a day said they had more desire, arousal, and erotic satisfaction than those who didn't. Those who drank more reported no change. A drink also may help raise a man's testosterone levels, which makes both men and women friskier. But men who drink too much can lose the desire and the ability to have copulation.
