Gin improves circulation.
Once used as a cure for malaria, gin has a rich history of medical benefits. What makes it so potent? According to Business Insider, the juniper berries in gin can prevent heart disease and improve blood circulation. Tanya Zuckerbrot, M.S., RD, dietician and founder of the F-Factor Diet, elaborates, “Gin does contain antioxidants, known as flavonoids, which can help fight cardiovascular disease, but wine is significantly more cardioprotective.”
Maple Holistics health and wellness expert Caleb Backe adds, “Gin, in moderation, is also known for its ability to help stop water retention in your body — which can be beneficial for your liver and kidney health because it prevents the buildup of toxins in your vital organs. Obviously, drinking too much will have the opposite effect, as the alcohol will weaken the organs ability to process or flush out toxins.”
