We have some good news for all of you who enjoy a few drinks after work every day. As with all things, moderation is key but a new study was actually able to link moderate alcohol consumption with longer life. That’s right, drinking can actually help you to live longer.

A new study presented at the American Association for the Advancement of Science found that people who lived to be 90 or older tend to drink moderately throughout their life. It is important to note that this study was not able to explain why this is happening, it only found the correlation.

Neurologist Claudia Kawas and her team at the University of California, Irvine started studying the drinking habits of people who live into their 90’s back in 2003. In total, Kawas and her team gathered data on approximately 1,700 people between the ages of 90 and 99.

It is worth noting that the jury is still out on just how good alcohol is for you, and what types of alcohol are helpful. There are definitely major differences between a glass of red wine every day and tequila. However, the latest studies are promising.

For now, it’s best to drink in moderation and keep an eye on the latest studies. Now, we all know that sometimes we forget to drink in moderation and go a bit overboard. When that happens it’s important to stay hydrated and keep a few packets of Intelligent Drinking’s LAUNCH nearby.
