So THIS Is The Healthiest Alcoholic Drink, According To Fitness Experts
Fancy a tipple?
Fitness experts have finally revealed the healthiest alcoholic drink to be sipping on if you’re on a health kick.
Resveratrol-rich red wine and also gin and vodka are three of the healthiest drinks, so long as you’re not mixing them with pop.
However, American wellness figures are praising a particular alcoholic drink above them all, reckoning it could actually be healthy for you.
You might be surprised to hear that it’s actually tequila that they’re all raving about. Rejoice!
It’s gluten free, it’s low calorie, low sugar and it’s suitable for vegans – but the most interesting claim of all is that it won’t give you a hangover. Praise Jesus hallelujah!
Not just ANY tequila though – it’s a very specific type that imparts these brilliant benefits. You need to be looking for blanco tequila.
It’s the purest form of the Mexican spirit you can get and crucially it’s made from 100 per cent agave.
Other tequilas and most other spirits are often full of sugars and other chemicals – and sugar is often the biggest stumbling block when it comes to weight loss.
Blanco tequilas, which are produced from blue agave rather than corn syrup or sugar, contain far less congeners than any other spirit or red wine – and congeners (whatever the hell they are) cause hangovers!
“José Cuervo — what most Americans think of as tequila — is 42 percent corn syrup, which gives you a horrible hangover,” Gracias Madre beverage director Jason Eisner claims in The Cut.
“We have a lot of trainers and fitness gurus who come in and drink every day — and the way they’re able to do that is to stick to pure agave spirits.
“As long as you stay hydrated and don’t drink, like, a whole bottle, you’re fine. Not hungover.”
Ok, so we know it’s only Monday, but we’ll definitely be picking up a bottle!
