What steps do you take to lead a healthier lifestyle? Some people wake up every morning and hit the gym to start their day off. Others choose to switch up their diet to keep their health on the right track. Some folks stick to the “An apple a day keeps the doctor away” mentality. While they all may be on to something, there may be another way.
Too much of a good thing isn’t always good. They say, “everything in moderation,” right? Well, for all of you whiskey lovers out there, we’ve got nine reasons why this nectar of the Gods may actually have some health benefits. If it gives us another reason to have a glass of our favorite spirit, why not?

Whiskey contains a powerful antioxidant known as ellagic acid that can eliminate cancer-causing free radicals in the human body. Skip the veggie smoothie and pour a shot of Jack!
2. Stroke Prevention
Whiskey, like any other alcohol, thins your blood. This should help ward off any strokes, right?
