Gin can help our metabolism- Research

Gin is good for your metabolism. That is according to researchers at Latvia's University of Sigulda.
.
The study, published in the journal Food & Nature, assessed how the alcoholic beverage affected calories in mice.
.
They found the tipple triggers an 'after burn' effects that enhances your body's ability to burn calories for a whole hour after you finish your drink.
.

Lead author, Professor Thisa Lye, said: 'Consumption of gin resulted in a marked increase in metabolic rate, which indicates the spirit may have a slimming effect on the body.' This likely stems from the core ingredient: antioxidant-rich juniper berries.
.
In fact, a 2008 study published in the Journal of Diabetes Nursing found gin and tonic is the safest alcohol drink for people with type 1 diabetes, given juniper's rejuvenating qualities that help to ease inflammation of the arteries.
.
However, sugar-sweetener mixers fuel bloating, destabilize metabolism, and affect digestion, halting the positive effect of gin.
.
N.B: Please drink responsibly😀👍🏽 .
