Health benefits of rum

When rum was first distilled, it was considered medicinal. Later on, rum consumption became an essential beverage for people at sea. Now that you know briefly about the history of rum, let’s look at what your favorite rum drink can do for your health as we consider the question, does rum have health benefits?

Examples of health benefits

According to some experts, rum has health benefits. For example, rum can strengthen your immune system because it’s loaded with iron and B vitamins. Rum also contains potassium which is an essential mineral for maintaining optimum nerve and muscle function in your body. Potassium is also responsible for keeping your heart rhythm steady and supports normal blood pressure levels already within healthy limits.

Common cold

Have you ever experienced the discomfort of having a sore throat? Have no fear, rum can provide relief! Consuming small portions each day will help treat your illness and prevent it from coming back. This is due to its high antibacterial properties which make colds disappear quickly with just one drink (or two).

Prevents kidney stone formation

Along with all these nutrients, studies suggest that rum also helps prevent kidney stone formation thanks to its rich concentration of magnesium. Magnesium deficiency leads to muscle cramping, high blood pressure, migraine headaches, anxiety/nervousness, fatigue & loss of appetite, etc., so make sure you drink rum with a good meal to avoid magnesium deficiency.

Keep your skin clean and clear

The beauty benefits of rum are famous, but there’s also a popular trick to get rid of acne. Mixing the soothing ingredients in a 1:2 ratio with rose water will clear away any bacteria on your skin and provide you relief from painful blemishes! Gently rinse off after 5-10 minutes for best results.

Helps prevent strokes

Like kidney stone formation, rum is also thought to help contribute in preventing strokes thanks to its high concentration of potassium and magnesium. While rum is rich in vitamin B6, which helps release homocysteine from the body before it has a chance to damage artery walls, rum also boosts your immune system. In fact, rum contains more antioxidants than most red wines & liquors that you can buy at any bar or restaurant today.

Improves digestion and sleep quality

Additionally, rum can potentially improve digestion and sleep quality because rum promotes the secretion of gastric juices (hydrochloric acid and pepsin) necessary for proper digestion. So make sure you drink rum with a meal like I said earlier. You’ll be thankful you did.

Cancer prevention

There is no denying that rum may have health benefits! Studies have shown that those who drink moderate amounts (1-2 drinks per day) were 38% less likely to contract kidney cancer than non-drinkers. Additionally, research shows how drinking this refreshing beverage can help prevent thyroid disease and lymphoma too – what more could you ask for?

What should you order next time, well rum of course?

While all alcohol should be consumed moderately, there’s no denying that Rum absorbs you with its powerful flavor and goes beyond being just another drink. So next time you are wondering which cocktail to order, consider what rum has to offer!
