Health benefits of cognac
Cognac is rightfully considered one of the most valuable and respected alcoholic beverages. Consuming it in reasonable amounts is not only enjoyable, but also beneficial to health. I will tell you how to maximize this benefit.
Biologically active substances in cognac have a positive effect on the body as a whole. Only 20-30 grams of the drink dilates blood vessels, lowering blood pressure and stimulating the heart. Even cardiologists do not deny this. In small quantities, cognac helps against headaches and angina attacks. Tannin and tannins contribute to the rapid absorption of vitamin C. Cognac stimulates appetite and stimulates the secretion of gastric juice, in some cases even relieves stomach cramps.
By adding a few drops of cognac to tea, you can boost your immune system and protect yourself from colds. Warmed cognac is an excellent remedy for sore throat, which is used for gargling. To bring down the heat, warm cognac is drunk with honey and lemon. When treating bronchitis, it is heated and mixed with milk.
Also cognacs relieve toothache well. It is enough to moisten two pieces of cotton wool in the drink, apply one of them to the aching tooth, the other near the ear, to which the affected tooth is closer. After a few minutes, the pain will subside.
Cognac is beneficial for improving hearing and memory. Winston Churchill is a prime example. In his life, the famous British politician loved two things – cognac and cigars. He died at the age of 90 in sound mind and memory.
In order not to harm your health, doctors recommend drinking no more than 30 ml of brandy per day. At the same time, it is better to drink it without additives (coffee, tonic, soda, etc.). Another important point is that the benefits of cognac depend on its quality. If you bought a surrogate made from oak sawdust, then do not expect a preventive and therapeutic effect from it.
Cognac is contraindicated for people suffering from hypotension, diabetes, cholelithiasis and other chronic diseases. In this case, it is better to refrain from using it.
