4 Good Reasons Why Taking Alcohol Is Not Bad

The excess intake of alcohol is not good for the body and mental health. However, moderate taking of alcohol has many health benefits that people or doctors won't tell you.

Moderate intake of alcohol makes you 25% to 40% less likely to have a heart attack, stroke, or hardened arteries while too much drinking will destroy your life.

However, here are the four benefits of taking alcohol that you need to know below 

1. Because it helps in reducing kidney stones

One of the major reasons why taking alcohol is good is because it can reduce kidney stones. A study from shows that the possibility of having kidneys stones is lesser in people who drink beer. The study says 41% less likely for those who drink beer, 33% for wine drinkers. The reason is that taking alcohol makes you urinate often, and in the process of urinating, you then clear out particles that are in the form of stones. Source:

2. It helps with dealing with stress

Alcohol takers can testify to this that taking it helps them deal with stress because after taking liquor, you sleep. Many people who find it hard to sleep sometimes refer to alcohol to sleep.

3. Fun

Many people take alcohol sometimes because of the fun attacked to collective drinking. Moderate collective drinking is also a good reason to take alcohol.

4. It reduces the risk of diabetes

A study from says that moderate taking of alcohol can reduce the cases of getting diabetes because the intake of alcohol reduces sugar levels in the body. Taking alcohol in this sense is moderate taking, not excess taking of alcohol, and also note that much intake can increase the sugar level.

Note I suggest 'Red Wine' because of the health benefits attached to it. It contains antioxidants, which can protect body cells from harm, and polyphenols, which can promote heart health. A study from also suggested Red Wine if someone decides to start taking alcohol. Too much alcohol consumption is not good, drink responsibly!!
