In case you needed a reason to enjoy a glass of whisky, we can provide you with seven! Remember to drink in moderation.
- RELIEVES STRESS
It may not come as a huge surprise that a shot of whisky can actually help you relax. Its barbiturate effects can reduce stress, while its sedative properties can aid sleep and anxiety.
- ANTIOXIDANT PROPERTIES
It is claimed that single malt whiskies contain more ellagic acid than red wine. Ellagic acid is an antioxidant that can decrease levels of inflammation to protect against disease.
- CONTROLS DIABETES
Although alcohol is not recommended for patients with diabetes, studies have shown that moderate consumption can help the body regulate insulin, which could potentially reduce one’s risk of contracting type 2 diabetes.
- AIDS DIGESTION
Historically, whisky has been used as a digestive in many cultures. It can combat indigestion and ease an upset stomach.
- LOWERS THE RISK OF DEMENTIA
Studies have shown that drinking whisky can actually improve a person’s cognitive responses and lower the risk of dementia.
- HELPS TO PREVENT STROKES
As whisky is a natural blood thinner, a daily shot can lower a person’s risk of ischemic stroke. Drinking whisky in moderation benefits the heart and blood vessels.
- TREATS THE COMMON COLD
Whisky is an efficient decongestant and can soothe a sore throat.
