If you’re one of many people that love alcohol, you no longer have to feel so guilty about drinking, whether you are out with friends or home alone because there are actually a few health benefits of vodka that you might not know about.
Because vodka is colorless, flavorless, and odorless, it goes well with a lot of drinks which lends greatly to its popularity among both men and women. Although it’s not as healthy as, say, pomegranate juice, when consumed in moderation (35 to 40 milliliters), vodka can actually be very healthy for you. Moderation is the key, but if you have any concerns about consuming it regularly, you should always check with your doctor first.
Here are some of the surprising health benefits of vodka.
1. Weight Loss
What makes vodka a great choice for people who are trying to lose weight is that it is low in calories (just 64 per ounce), and has no carbohydrates. However, where most people get themselves into trouble and negate these weight loss benefits of vodka is when they mix it with high-sugar and high-calorie drinks.
So, to enjoy a night out on the town without worrying about gaining weight, try drinking vodka straight or mixed with sugar-free options.
