I have always loved sake and when I start drinking, I drink a lot.
On the other hand, I am doing a pareo diet that reproduces the Paleolithic diet.
Of course, people from the Paleolithic period should not drink alcohol, so if you want to do a strict pareo diet, you should not drink alcohol.
However, it is difficult to drink alcohol at all in reality.
So this time, I will consider scientifically what kind of liquor you can drink in a pareo diet that reproduces the dietary life of the Paleolithic period.
- Red wine
As shown in the following literature, polyphenols are fully proven to be good for your health.
Resveratrol in particular has a very high anti-aging effect.

- Tequila, rum, vodka
These are fine because they are low in carbohydrates.
In fact, alcohol has the effect of relieving stress.
Stress is not good for anti-aging because it promotes inflammation in the body.
In that sense, sake is good for anti-aging.
The sugar of beer is not good for your health.
- High-sugar liquor other than beer
You must be careful because sometimes some sake is high in sugar.
The cocktail is high in sugar and contains fructose.
In addition, as shown in the following literature, sake may interfere with the secretion of male hormones.
In other words, drinking from this point of view has problems with anti-aging.

By the way, Asians may be inferior in their ability to break down alcohol, so Asians should be more careful with drinking.

Based on the above points, it seems that there is basically no problem as long as you drink wine or tequila.
However, no matter how good red wine is, if you drink a lot, oxidative stress will occur.
So even if you drink, it seems to be good to keep up to 2 glasses a day.
