    It was really nice how you mentioned that drinking alcohol in moderation not only creates better insulin sensitivity, it also raises the amounts of good cholesterol inside the body. I like the insulin part because I am aware that we have a family history of diabetes. It was great that I came across this article because I found a possible solution to the problem. I will give drinking a try. Thank you!

    Thanks for pointing out that drinking alcohol in moderation can actually help decrease your chances of getting the common cold. I’m going to visit my sister next week, and I feel like whenever I travel I end up sick with a cold. Maybe I’ll try to prevent that by finding some good places for a few drinks!

    I had no idea that you could get vitamins from alcoholic spirits. This is a great plus to drinking a nice beverage with a late night dinner. My sister would love knowing this as she looks into getting alcoholic beverages.

    It got me when you pointed out that according to some research, people who drink alcohol in moderation have better chances of fighting the common cold than others. If that is the case, then I will make sure that I suggest this to my brother since he doesn’t really drink. This is important since he is prone to getting colds. Who knows– this might work for him.

    I like what you said about how consuming alcohol will help you get more good cholesterol that benefits your cardiovascular health. I am turning 50 next week. It is about time I take my heart health seriously, so I will be sure to try and drink alcohol every now and then.

    best tip to try and drink as much water as you are drinking alcohol. That way, your blood alcohol levels stay low. My wife and I are planning a housewarming party, and we want to serve alcohol. I will be sure to provide water as well as alcohol!

    I like that you mention that beer has vitamin B, riboflavin, thiamin, calcium and magnesium. My mom doesn’t believe that alcohol is healthy but she sure does love wine! Thank you for the information. I’ll share this information with her so she can believe me and perhaps I’ll also buy a bottle of wine for her too.
