Much has been said and written about the dangers of alcohol. And it is not surprising, because any abuse does not carry any benefit. However, doctors have found that small doses of alcohol, used in the absence of a number of contraindications, improve well-being and can even prevent serious illnesses.
It turns out that if a man drinks 50 g of alcohol per week, then the risk of heart disease is reduced by 7%, and in women up to 30%. A tablespoon of cognac can help people suffering from low blood pressure. A glass of dry red wine helps to lower blood sugar, improve the functioning of the gastrointestinal tract and digestion. An old French recipe can help with a cold: in 250 ml of champagne you need to add two lumps of sugar and bring the liquid to a boil, let it cool and drink in one gulp before going to bed.
One teaspoon of cognac can calm the nerves and help relieve stress.
An interesting discovery was made relatively recently, it turns out that in women during menopause, drinking alcohol helps to strengthen bone tissue.
Be that as it may, it is always necessary to remember that alcoholic beverages can have a healing effect only on non-drinkers and low-drinkers. Otherwise, all the pluses turn into unequal minuses. Most alcoholics die from heart disease, liver disease and nervous system disorders. Therefore, before practicing alcohol treatment, you should think carefully: is it possible to replace 50 g for the heart with a handful of almonds and a piece of chocolate? Eat a delicious apple or grapefruit instead of a glass of wine to reduce sugar? With a cold, you can drink proven tea with raspberries, and with upset nerves - a decoction of chamomile. To strengthen bones, you can take calcium or a special vitamin complex.
So if you're not 100% sure of your sense of proportion, get inspired and look for alternatives!
