‘Is it OK if I drink #ALCOHOL?’
Something that comes up during every consultation 😁 ➖
Well, all alcohol should be limited as we obviously want to stay as toxin-free as possible, I know that it is perhaps unrealistic to think that all of us will never have an alcoholic beverage again. So the trick is to pick your poison wisely. ➖
Biodynamic #wine 🍷 with no added sulfites is OK, since it contains flavonoids and antioxidants. Though it is fermented and does contain sugar, wine is not as hard on the liver as hard liquor.
On the other hand an interesting fact about beer is that the hops that are used to brew it can have some estrogenic effects, meaning it can disrupt your hormonal balance. Unfortunately for the beer lovers it can also be very bloating, cause sugar spikes and often contains gluten. ➖
Dark liquors like whiskey or scotch 🥃 contain more congener which are responsible for taste and aroma of distilled alcoholic beverages. Studies have shown that those produce stronger hangovers, because of their extra impurities. ➖
If you really feel like having a #cocktail🍹 (or 3) stick to clear liquor vodka or gin. Keep it simple and low sugar. Vodka+soda water+lime is a good, simple drink option. ➖
Don’t forget to have some food before and drink a lot of water with every single drink 🍸 to avoid dehydration and help to flush out the toxins out of your system.
I personally drink very rarely.
How about you? 🙃
