Health Tip

Did you know that excessive alcohol intake can increase calcium loss from bones, making them weaker? One way that alcohol negatively affects bone health is by interfering with the balance of calcium and the production of vitamin D, both essential nutrients for healthy bones. In addition, alcohol can irritate the intestinal tract, aggravating conditions such as ulcers and heartburn. If you choose to drink alcohol, do so in moderation. Moderation is one or fewer drinks per day for women, two or fewer for men.
