6 Ways Vodka is Good for Your Health

Vodka was made for so much more than mules and martinis. It may  surprise you to learn that the spirit was actually invented as a source  of medicine and to this day, the colorless, odorless drink has a number  of health benefits. So the next time you're debating what kind of  cocktail to order, consider this:

  1.  Vodka has disinfectant properties.

Vodka is a natural disinfectant and antiseptic. It has been used to  treat toothaches, clean wounds, and clean your house, though you  probably shouldn't swap it out for your regular household disinfectant.

  1.  It can relieve stress.

You may have heard that red wine is a natural relaxer, but it's  nothing compared to vodka, which has been scientifically proven to  relieve tension better than vino.

  1.  It's heart-healthy.

Vodka can increase blood-flow and circulation in your body which can  prevent clots, strokes, and other heart diseases. (It was an animal  study, though, so take with a grain of salt.) Vodka can also help lower  your cholesterol. And, for those watching their weight, it's also  generally considered a lower-calorie alcohol.

  1.  It contributes to oral hygiene.

We already mentioned how vodka can soothe toothaches, but swishing a shot of it can help combat bad breath as well.

  1.  It can alleviate symptoms caused by arthritis.

Apparently, patients who suffered from rheumatoid arthritis and had  semi-regular vodka drinks throughout the month felt less pain and  inflammation associated with their disease, according to this study.

  1.  It reduces risks associated with diabetes.

Unlike beer or wine, a shot of vodka can actually reduce blood sugar  levels. This is most effective when taken straight: never has there been  a better excuse for a martini.
