Whiskey is a low-carb drink, that is why it makes the perfect choice for keeping your  weight under control. The American Society for Clinical Nutrition published a study in 1991 proofs that moderate intake increases energy and decreases the desire for sugar intake. A neat whiskey is only 64 calories and contains NO carbs, NO Fats and NO sugars!

2 ~ Whisky might prevent Dementia

A 2012 study published in the Pharmacognosy Review has actually shown that whiskey can successfully boost your cognitive performance and reduce your chances of developing dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. Ellagic acid is extremely powerful in terms of fighting against free radicals within the body which interrupt neural pathways and contribute to the slow decline towards dementia. Whiskey can reduce that mental decline and improve quality of life as we get older.
