10 reasons why drinking gin may be good for you

Alcohol does not go hand in hand with a healthy lifestyle, it not only gives you bad calories, but it can also encourage you to make the wrong decisions. However, this does not mean that drinking alcohol in moderation is completely useless. In fact, genie has something to offer. Read on and find out why gin can be a pretty good drink for you.

Disease control

Juniper berries are extremely healthy fruits with many healing properties. They are also the main ingredient in gin. Used for centuries as a local anesthetic, juniper berries can also help fight cough and pulmonary embolism. The oils contained in juniper berries help cleanse the bronchi and remove mucus.

Joint Pain Relief

Drink some gin if your joints hurt or you have arthritis. The pain will subside even if it is caused by rheumatoid arthritis. In fact, some people with arthritis cook raisins soaked in gin to relieve pain.

Better digestion

Many people avoid gin because of its slightly bitter taste, however this drink can work wonders for your digestive system. The herbs used to make gin can increase both stomach acid and digestive enzymes. This will improve the digestion processes in your body.

Away from malaria

If you travel to the country where malaria occurs, you can order a gin and tonic as soon as you get there. Gin and tonic were developed in the 1800s when it was difficult to access quinine. Quinine from bark was an important drug that cured and prevented malaria. Of course, you should not replace antimalarial drugs with gin and tonic, but now, at least, you know that there is a way to take quinine in a more tasty and exciting way.

Cleansing

If you have problems with bloating or urinary tract infections, gin can help you. Juniper berries have a diuretic effect, increase urine production and, thus, delay water retention. An increase in urine often removes toxins and bacteria that cause infections.

Liver

The liver is full of strength, it sounds illogical, because juniper berries have a diuretic effect, but theoretically they can be useful in liver diseases. Remember, however, that if alcohol is the cause of the disease, gin is the last thing to take.

Increase Herb Intake

Herbal medicines and teas can work wonders, and the composition of gin makes it an excellent choice for those who are looking for more "natural" alcohol. Made from juniper berries, coriander, cinnamon, nutmeg, sage, angelica root and rosemary (among others), this is probably the healthiest alcohol available on the market.

Young skin

 You've probably heard about the anti-aging properties of red wine, but don’t know that gin has a comparable effect? This drink, again thanks to its natural ingredients, contains many antioxidants that will keep your skin fresh, moisturized and youthful.
Note: Juniper berries have many antioxidant properties, but gin is relatively free of antioxidants, so to get any antioxidants it must be covered with barrels (a long maturation process in wooden barrels affects the production of polyphenols and furans).

Life extension

Alcohol abuse does not improve quality of life, but moderate consumption of gin can maintain blood circulation, which can prolong life. Juniper berries also contain flavonoids, and have a number of health and cardiovascular benefits, so preventing atherosclerosis is just one of the many amazing things this drink can do.

Weight control

Unlike other alcoholic products, gin has relatively few calories. A glass of gin is just 97 calories. Drink it!
