Surprising Yet Significant Ways to Better Health with Whiskey

There are so many types of whiskeys around the globe, but one of the things they share in common is their ability to provide surprising yet significant benefits to health. Of course, we’re talking about small to moderate consumption. And we know that this drink can taste strong in the mouth, hence the fruit-infused Derby Spirits whiskey line was born.

Below are some of the ways whiskey can change your health for the better:

Cognitive Function Improvement

Studies have proven that whiskey can improve cognition and prevent dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. Further research is still being conducted, but the power of ellagic acid, an antioxidant found in the beverage, cannot be denied. Ellagic acid neutralizes the neural pathway-damaging free radicals that bring about mental degradation. Therefore, by regularly drinking whiskey in reasonable amounts, we can prevent this scenario and improve our quality of life as we age. There are those who may hesitate because of the drink’s strong taste, but that’s exactly what fruit-infused Derby Spirits
whiskeys are there for.

Cardiovascular Protection

As a natural effect of age, our bodies turn frail and our organ systems work with less efficiency. That means our hearts turn weak as well. New studies have shown, however, that regular and moderate whiskey drinkers can reduce their chances of having a heart attack or stroke by 50%. With fruit-infused whiskeys made by Derby Spirits, this becomes a more fun and enjoyable habit.

Additionally, whiskey has been proven to control blood clotting. When you have a wound, blood clotting prevents you from losing too much blood; when your blood clots internally – that is, in your blood vessels or arteries – you can have a stroke or heart attack. As whiskey is a blood thinner, you will have less chances of developing an internal blood clot.

Cancer Prevention

There are few diseases as feared as cancer, but this can be prevented with some help from the antioxidant, ellagic acid, found in whiskey. Whiskey is traditionally believed to be a “strong man’s” drink, but with the Derby Spirits fruit-infused whiskey line, everyone can enjoy its benefits.

Stronger Immune System

The antioxidants and trace levels of vitamins in whiskey help our immune system in the fight against infections and illnesses. Those scenes in classic movies where a wound is disinfected by pouring whiskey over it, are not exactly fiction.

Diabetes Control

Whiskey has always been shown to control people’s chances of getting diabetes, sometimes by up to 30% to 40%. This is due to the beverage’s notable ability to regulate the body’s insulin and glucose levels.

Again, whiskey’s health benefits are only possible with moderate consumption. Otherwise, you’re only making yourself vulnerable to various diseases, especially those affecting your liver as well as your kidneys.
