We are already into WEEK TWO of Sober October and hope you’re feeling amazing. Something you may not have been aware of is the health benefits that go along with reducing your alcohol consumption- a win, win if you ask us!
Here are a few things you might notice as you continue rocking the dry month:
Because alcohol is a depressant, it can cause shifts in your moods and mental health. Limiting your consumption can help stabilize your serotonin level and prevent drastic mood changes!
Improved Memory Function
Alcohol can actually affect your brain function! It can do this by impairing the communication between neurons which can lead to short term memory loss. Reducing the amount of alcohol you consume can keep your memory sharp and your brain function healthier.
Boosted Immune System
Alcohol can have a very immediate and negative effect on your immune system- reducing it’s ability to fight off germs. This can reduce your body’s ability to repair itself. So as intake is reduced- your immune system will begin to heal and strengthen!
Because alcohol can affect the way your central nervous system functions, it can prevent you from achieving a deep sleep. Without the disruption, your blood pressure and heart rate can remain stable as you rest!
Health and wellness mean a lot to the team here at Libra and we really believe in the power of moderation. A few benefits we see in choosing non-alcoholic beer over regular beer are:
Lower Calorie Intake
The average calorie count in an alcoholic pint of beer is around 200 calories. Some even more. By removing the alcohol from our beers, we are also removing the high calories. Libra comes in at just 30 cals.
Unlike your average bottle of alcoholic beer, most NA brews have the nutritional facts & ingredients printed on their side, so you know exactly what's going in your body.
Being involved with marathons and runners across the country has shown us that many athletes are eager to find delicious non-alc alternatives to take advantage of some of the health benefits we've talked about. This week, we will be sponsoring the PEI Marathon and handing out Libras at the finish line. Come say hi and hydrate with us.
Here's to a healthy WEEK TWO!
