What if you had a product that reduced cholesterol, balanced blood sugars, helped you lose weight, sleep better, improved concentration, gave you more energy and even better skin? You’d be raking it in! But, this isn’t a miracle wonderdrug we’re talking about. We’re talking about giving up alcohol for a month.
Giving up drink for a month has become more and more popular, especially in Ireland. Most people are aware that taking a month off isn’t going to totally reverse the effects of an entire year of drinking, but it can do you a lot of good.
New Scientist magazine recently investigated the effects of foregoing alcohol for a short period. Last year 14 members of the magazine’s staff did a study in conjunction with the Royal Free Hospital in London. 10 of the group gave up drink for 5 weeks, while the other 4 continued as normal. Surprisingly, despite considering themselves to be relatively moderate drinkers, all of the abstainers experienced dramatic changes. Abstaining from drink for one month altered their liver fat, cholesterol & blood sugars. You can read the full article here.
