Breast Cancer UK Prevention Week

Blame it on the alcohol.

At Nix and Kix, we’re all about healthy living and promoting mindful consumption. Sometimes it can be the small changes we make in our daily lives that make all the difference to our overall health. For too long, soft drinks have been an ugly sister to alcohol. Our mission is to remove the stigma and boredom that surrounds soft drinks. We’re here to give soft drinks a new name.

Now we all love a drink once in a while but with growing awareness of the impact of drinking too much alcohol can have on our health it is worth trying to reduce your weekly unit count.   As Breast Cancer UK’s Prevention Week highlights there is a strong link between alcohol and breast cancer as it can increase oestrogen levels in our bodies which is associated with increased breast cancer risk.

We know it can be hard to turn down a drink sometimes, especially when you’re out with friends. But that doesn’t mean you have to miss out on the fun. Mocktails are a marvellous alternative for social events, or when you fancy a drink at home!

As a brand who solidly stands behind happiness as a priority in life, here at Nix & Kix we love to mix a mocktail.  And did you know that scientists have found that capsaicin – which is an active component of chilli peppers – which is the (not so) secret ingredient in all our drinks – stimulates the release of endorphins, the happy hormone!

It’s never easy to completely swipe out everything that is bad for us from our lives, but making small changes can be the first step towards leading a healthier lifestyle.

Remember, your body is a temple so treat is well!
