SUMMER COOLER COCKTAIL


SUMMER COOLER COCKTAIL

(JUST ADD YOUR TRIM OR ENERGY)

Disclaimer: We neither condemn nor condone moderate consumption of alcohol beverages.   With moderate consumption, and healthier alternatives, you can enjoy a cool , refreshing cocktail on a hot Summer’s day or evening; BBQ or family gathering!   Always remember, not to over consume as can be be dangerous to your health and more!

That said, there is evidence that moderate consumption of alcohol may be related to improvements in various biomarkers (e.g., markers of inflammation) and aspects of health (e.g., cardiovascular health, cognitive function, gut microbiota). Excessive alcohol consumption, on the other hand, has obvious, well-known detrimental effects on virtually every aspect of human health. And remember, never drink and drive.

MARGARITAS!
