Our top picks for non-alcohol spirits
The VITL Nutrition Team
Research has found that more than a quarter (28%) of people think they have been drinking more during lockdown. Here are a few of our favourite non-alcoholic spirits to try this month.
In recent years, the market for non-alcohol drinks has grown exponentially. With more choices available than ever, it's much easier to make the switch and cut down on your weekly alcohol intake. Research shows that people are more likely to choose non-alcoholic drinks if there are more available on a menu than their alcoholic versions.
Going alcohol-free has a myriad of health benefits, from better sleep to better productivity. High, regular drinking has been shown to have detrimental effects on our health, increasing the risk for cancers, stroke, liver disease, heart disease and damage to the brain and nervous system. As well as physical health consequences, alcohol abuse can have damaging effects on mental wellbeing.
We've put together a list of our favourite non-alcoholic spirits on the market for you to try.
