Drinking Gin Can Rev Up Your Metabolism

by Neha Monga

Need a reason to drink gin? Now you have a good one. According to a research published in the journal Food & Nature, drinking gin enhances your body’s ability to burn calories for an hour after you finish your drink.

According to researchers from the University of Sigulda in Latvia, gin is made from antioxidant-rich juniper berries, which is good for your metabolism and helps your body burn calories more efficiently. According to the researchers, the mice who were fed regular doses of the spirit, saw an increase of 17% in their metabolic rate.

“Consumption of gin resulted in a marked increase in metabolic rate, which indicates the spirit may have a slimming effect on the body,” explained Thisa Lye, the lead study author in the research.

But before you decide to go on a gin diet, let’s just understand the actual theory behind it.

The findings suggest that the gin tipple triggers some sort of ‘after burn’ effect that enhances your body’s ability to burn calories for an hour after you finish your drink.

Healthy antioxidant-dense juniper berries, which is the core ingredient in gin, is thought to have something to do with how the booze does a body good.

Although further research is needed on humans to understand if it speeds up metabolism, the recent study already gives us the license to enjoy our gin and tonic.
