Health Benefits of Cognac

Is Cognac Good For Your Health?

Some scientific research says yes.

Cognac is world renown as a world class spirit whose creation involves a careful, arduous and painstaking process from soil to glass. Cognac is well-known for its lifting the spirits of its aficionados. Cognac is a pleasure sipped straight or on ice and can complement or enhance a fine meal or cigar. There may also be health benefits to cognac. According to one spry 102 year old marathon runner, Cognac can also help keep you young.

Meet Ida Keeling

In 1972, then 57 year old Ida Keeling was “prescribed” a little Hennessy for her poor circulation. She describes in this video how she would take a shot of Cognac, straight every day. She apparently follows this regime to this day.

Ms. Keeling secrets to longevity do not rest on Cognac alone. Among her pearls of wisdom she describes in this video:

Don’t give up on yourself.
Don’t abuse yourself, love yourself and take care of yourself.
Think for yourself.
Stand on your own feet.
Always be involved in exercise.
Don’t think old.
Keep moving.
If your feet hurt, massage them, be like a rubberband.

Health Benefits of Cognac

According to an article in Livestrong, there is scientific evidence that Cognac may be good for you in moderation.

These benefits include:

-increase antioxidant levels that can prevent risk of clogged arteries, heart disease, cancer and vision loss and may even help the body absorb other antioxidants.

-may reduce risk for blood clots.

-may limit risk for type 2 diabetes and gallstones.

Any of these potential health benefits, however, are negated if Cognac is consumed immoderately – i.e. one drink per day for women and no more than two drinks per day for men. Any thing more than that increases health risk.
