5 Hidden Health Benefits In Whiskey

Did you know that compared with other alcoholic drinks, whiskey is the least likely to leave you with a hangover? Apart from that, it is one of the best drinks to have in terms of health.

Here are 5 health benefits that make drinking whiskey a good habit to have.

It keeps you slim

Compared to beer, wine and other spirits, whiskey has a very low-calorie count. It also contains practically no sugar. Of cause, this all changes once you add a mixer, so its best to keep it neat to avoid that unsightly beer belly. Whiskey also reduces the appetite. One drink towards the end of a meal ensures that you are not going to overeat your way out of that bikini or speedo body.

Increase heart health

Whiskey can reduce the risk of blood clots, decreasing the chances of suffering from a heart attack or stroke. There are also antioxidants found in whiskey that prevent cholesterol from building up in the arteries and promote the health of good cholesterol that your heart craves.

Boost your sex drive

A shot of whiskey increases the blood flow to ALL of the organs, helping men who sometimes suffer from erectile dysfunction. 

Ease stress and anxiety

A shot of whiskey after a hard day helps to calm your nerves, thus relaxing your body. Stress and anxiety can lead to any number of physical health problems, a series of events that can be avoided with the occasional whiskey cocktail. 

Improves your digestive system

Historically, whiskey is consumed after a meal to help the food pass calmly through the digestive system. The influx of fresh blood it brings to the stomach and other organs help the body to relax and get to work on digesting your meal.
