A Break From Booze

With adults reportedly trying to cut down on their alcohol consumption, Alcohol Change UK estimated that 4.5 million people took part in Dry Jan 2018 compared to 17K in 2014. 

Drinking habits are changing in the UK for many reasons. This includes people becoming more health conscious both physically and mentally, and changes in social plans due to the increased use of technology.  

The increased use of technology has not only changed social plans but has also led to young people being more conscious of how much they’re drinking because of what might appear on social media. Not only is there a rise in consciousness for their own responsibility but also for others and the planet, with the rise in sustainability and veganism. 

With the rise in stress and anxiety amongst young people today it is no surprise that more of them are wanting to cut back on alcohol consumption and misuse. It has been reported that over 50% of millenials view their mental health as of the highest importance.

Taking a break from booze can not only aid health but also your bank balance.

What are some of the health benefits associated with reduced alcohol intake;

  1. Feel healthier: Taking a break from alcohol can help to reduce blood sugar levels, lower blood pressure and improve concentration.
  2. Sleep better: Alcohol can disrupt our sleep pattern which can leave us feeling tired and sluggish the following day, impacting performance both in and outside of work.
  3. Aid weight management: By reducing your alcohol intake you may reduce your calorie consumption. One glass of wine has approximately 100 calories and one pint of beer has approximately 200 calories. By having a break from booze you may notice the difference on your waistline. 

At Cellnutriton we provide a range of supplements that can further enhance these benefits when taken daily. 

Cellnutrition Quinton contains 78 minerals and trace elements and in the correct proportions for each one to be absorbed and metabolised in the body. Minerals and trace elements work in synergy in the body which is why is it crucial to supplement with the full spectrum as opposed to one sole mineral. Taking Cellnutrition Quinton daily aids health by restoring the supply of all minerals needed for a fully functioning metabolism. The minerals and trace elements in Cellnutrition Quinton not only support health but help our cells hold on to water, aiding hydration in the body. 

Alcohol is a diuretic and can therefore leave us feeling dehydrated the following day. The excretion of some minerals such as magnesium can also double with alcohol consumption, increasing the bodies needs for minerals the following day.
