Drinking in Moderation could be good for the Gray Matter According to Scientists

Dont just take our word for it, its all in the Science!

If we keep our drinking habits within moderation it could actually be beneficial for our brain function.

We have heard the science before that moderate drinking can help heart health and that Gin in particular with its super berries " Juniper" can help with circulation, anti wrinkle therapy, water retention and bone health but now our noggin is benefiting from an occasional tipple.

A study over two years at the University of Georgia compared brain function in older adults with light to moderate drinking habits compared to non drinkers in a study of almost 20,000 people.

Compared to nondrinkers, they found that those who had a drink or two a day tended to perform better on cognitive tests over time.

Even when other important factors known to impact cognition such as age, smoking or education level were controlled for, they saw a pattern of light drinking associated with high cognitive trajectories.

The optimal amount of drinks per week was between 10 and 14 drinks. But that doesn't mean those who drink less should start indulging more, says researcher Zhang.

"It is hard to say this effect is causal," he said. "So, if some people don't drink alcoholic beverages, this study does not encourage them to drink to prevent cognitive function decline."

We may be biased but we feel if you decide to enjoy the occasional tipple gin is the better option, its certainly has the lowest calories if you are keeping an eye on the waist line and paired with a low sugar tonic, you can now go guilt free.
