Drinking Brandy Is Good For Health
Consuming 30 milliliters of brandy per day reportedly has a similar antioxidant potential which a regular dose of vitamin C has, according to researchers belonging to the Monash University. This does not mean that consuming Vitamin C should be given up, but it can continue along with drinking brandy.

Red wine is known to be another source of antioxidant. The arteries are de-sludged by its consumption in addition to it contributing towards preventing strokes and certain types of dementia. The copper from brandy's distilling process results in the antioxidants being produced, with a better health effect from superior quality brandy. Recent research has revealed that the same health benefits can be derived from whisky also.

The study was conducted by Dr Steve Langford, a chemist, and Dr Gordon Troup, a physicist. Brandy-infused fruitcake which is consumed during Christmas also has the same effect. As many as seven types of the liquor were tested with an electron spin resonance spectroscopy for imaging antioxidant chemicals and free radicals, and six of them were found to contain antioxidants. The Alcohol in Moderation Digest has published the results of the research.

Yes, its true that brandy drinking in moderation helps-as an industry expert I can vouch that. But the brandy has to be a real one! Cheers

My grandmother lived to be 103, drank 1 2oz shot of brandy every night,since the age of 17 followed by a glass of water.She had a heart murmur. Like everything else, excess leads to sickness, especially alcohol and the such.
