5 Alcohol Drinks you should be Drinking & Their Health Benefits

The dangers and potential health benefits of alcohol seem to be difficult to understand; this is understandable because there is no clear evidence of moderate alcohol consumption in healthy adults. Very little information among researchers about the dangers or benefits of moderate alcohol use in healthy adults. Nearly all research into habits, including food, exercise, caffeine, and alcohol, rely on patient memory and long years of detailed behavior reporting. Such studies may indicate a link between two incidents, but not causing one to another.

Healthy adults may participate in more social activities and drink moderate amounts of alcohol but the alcohol has little to do with making them healthier. The potential alcohol benefit is fairly low and is not common to all citizens. The latest dietary guidelines make it clear that no-one should start drinking alcohol or drinking more frequently, based on potential health benefits. To some, the potential benefits do not outweigh the disadvantages, and it is best to avoid alcohol.

On the other hand, if you are a light to the moderate drinker and you are healthy, you are likely to continue to drink alcohol as long as you do so responsibly. Moderate alcohol consumption can bring health benefits such as: reducing the risk of developing heart disease and dying from it. The risk for diabetes can be minimized by reducing the risk of ischemic stroke (when the arteries of the brain are narrowed or blocked, causing extreme blood flow to decrease)

Here are some great alcoholic drinks and their value for the body when drinking in good and not excessive quantities

1. Tequila

Tequila has been shown to boost blood sugar. Agavins naturally exist in the agave crop as non-digestible sugars, meaning that they act as dietary fiber and promote healthy microbial growth in the mouth and intestines. Tequila is safe for teeth, it improves digestion, it checks blood sugar and it improves to lose weight. Relax, it's probiosis and takes the pain away

2. Red Wine

Red wine and something good in the heart called red wine resveratrol. Red wine was long described as safe, moderate in shape. In red wine, alcohol and certain substances are known as antioxidants that can help prevent heart attacks from coronary artery disease. Many of the benefits of Red Wine include intestinal microbiota and cardiovascular defense to prevent heart attacks, increased amounts of omega-3 fatty acids that also protect the skin. Red wine also lowers the risk of cardiometabolic diseases, especially in people with type 2 diabetes. It increases longevity and blood vessels which are hypertensive. Red Wine aims to eliminate brain stroke and breast and colon cancers.

3. Whiskey

Whiskey or whiskey is a type of alcoholic spirit distilled made from fermented mashed grain. For various crops, most (malleable) grains are used, including barley, maize, rye, and wheat. Here are some of the benefits of drinking whiskey: support for weight loss, cancer prevention, stroke prevention, common cold whiskey therapy, stress reduction, lower risk of obesity, improved appetite, and help with diabetes.

4. Champagne

Champagne is good for the skin, like the red and white wines. It includes the same white and red antioxidants that avoid damage to the blood vessels, minimize bad cholesterol, and prevent blood clots. That decreases the risk of both heart and stroke. This could help avoid Alzheimer's disease and dementia by drinking champagne every day.

5. Beer

Beer is one of the most intoxicating beverages in the world today and other alcoholic items are certainly more nutritious. A pint a day is likely to eliminate 1/3 of the risk of heart disease, Italy's Mediterranean neurology institute specialists claim. Other advantages of drinking beer include avoiding heart disease, diabetes, improving memory, building up bone, and raising blood pressure. We've all heard, of course, that alcohol is terrible for you but what about the benefits? Here's our list of four ways you could help your health if you drink alcohol in moderation (when, of course, you are from the legal drinking age).

1. It Can Lower Your Risk Of Cardiovascular Disease

Moderate concentrations of alcohol increase rates of high-density lipoprotein, HDL, or 'healthy' cholesterol, and higher rates of HDL are correlated with greater heart disease safety. Moderate alcohol intake has also been related to beneficial changes ranging from improved insulin sensitivity to improvements in factors that affect blood clotting... Such changes will help to avoid the development of small blood clots that can block arteries in the heart, neck, and brain, the primary cause of many heart attacks, and the most common type of stroke." This result extends to both men and women who have not been diagnosed with some form of cardiovascular disease beforehand.

2. It Helps Prevent Against the Common Cold

Besides, although the exposure to a common cold increased due to smoking, the Department of Psychology at Carnegie Mellon University found that moderate intake of alcohol decreased frequently identified cold cases for non-smokers. In 1993 this study was carried out with 391 adults. In 2002, according to the New York Times, Spanish researchers found that one could see a 60-percent reduction in the risk of developing a cold by drinking eight to 14 glasses of wine per week, particularly red wine. The researchers believed this had something to do with the wine's antioxidant properties.

 3. It Can Decrease Chances Of Developing Dementia

Moderate drinkers were 23 percent less likely to develop cognitive impairment, or Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia in a study involving more than 365,000 participants from 1977 onwards, as reported in the journal Neuropsychiatric Disease & Treatment. "Small amounts of alcohol can also make brain cell fits better," said Edward J. Neafsey, Ph.D., co-author of the report, Science Daily. "Alcohol in small quantities stimulates the cell and thus towers it to cure big stimulates along the way that may cause dementia. "To drink nondrinkers we don't recommend," said Neafsey. "But moderate — when it is moderate — drinking can be helpful."

4. It Can Reduce The Risk Of Gallstones

According to researchers at the University of East Anglia, consuming two units of alcohol a day will minimize the incidence of gallstones by a third. The study showed that gallstones are one-third reduced in risk for people reporting two UK units of alcohol a day. "Studies have stressed that the results show the benefits of moderate consumption of alcohol but emphasize that excessive intake of alcohol can lead to health problems," the study said.
