You might be shaking your head at this title – vodka? Health benefits? Really? Well, we’re here to tell you that yes, vodka (in moderation) is actually good for you! Here, we present our list of the top 10 health benefits of vodka. Check out part one of our list below, and stay tuned for part two, coming soon!
Number One: It Will Lower Your Stress Levels. Many people drink when they’re stressed out to relax, but vodka has a little something extra to destress you. Drinking the clear stuff in moderation will help you relax and can even lower your stress levels on a long-term basis.
Number Three: It’s Fat-Free. It’s no secret that it’s is every dieter’s choice of booze, but do you know why? Vodka is a great choice not because it’s clear, but because it’s a good appetite suppressant and contains the fewest calories of any hard liquor. It’s is extremely low in sugar and only needs to be mixed with seltzer to hide the taste. Other hard liquors, such as whiskey, may require a more sugary mixer if you really want to hide the booze.
Number Four: It’s a Disinfectant. Sure, there are some notable health benefits of drinking it, but there are even more outside of that! Vodka is an excellent disinfectant, so you can keep your home – and subsequently yourself – clean with it. It’s also a great antiseptic.
Number Five: It Will Extend Your Lifespan. It’s true! Drinking vodka in moderate quantities has been scientifically proven to lower mortality rates in people. Of course, that’s a moderate consumption. Drinking vodka in excess is neither healthy nor beneficial.
