Know Your Units App

We have recently launched our brand new app ‘Know your Units’, available on the App Store and the Google Play Store.

The app is a great way to monitor your drinking ‘on the go’ as it provides useful information regarding the limits of drinking.

What’s it for?

The app has two tools, the Unit Guide and the Virtual Bar.

The Unit Guide will help you work out how many units, calories and how long it would take to ‘run off’.

The Virtual Bar works out if your usual round of drinks in a night is putting your health at risk. It will give you a result and provide you with the necessary advice should you require it.

Who’s it for?

It’s really for anyone who drinks alcohol regardless of age. We hope the app will aid you in monitoring your intake and help you take control of how much you drink. There’s nothing wrong with having a drink but it is your responsibility to make sure you don’t put your health at risk, but there are many helplines available in the app should you need any support.

With so many parties happening around the summer, this app is perfect to make sure you don’t drink too much. You should always plan ahead, know your limits and stop when you know you’ve had enough.

Never take any risks.

The Benefits of Cutting Back on Alcohol

Keeping an eye on what you drink can have a positive effect on your overall health and well-being and we hope that ‘Know your Units’ will help aid you in doing so. Here are a few of the benefits to cutting down your alcohol intake:

  • Alcohol is heavy on calories. And with 682 calories in an average 13% bottle of wine, cutting down is a great way to stay in shape;
  • Drinking less means you will have a better quality sleep because alcohol interferes with the normal sleep process;
  • Some people drink to relax but in fact, since alcohol is a depressant it can actually make you feel more stressed;
  • No more hangovers! Say goodbye to a sore head, dry mouth and that dreaded “why did I drink so much last night?” hangover feeling!;
  • Cutting down can be great news for your long-term health. Drinking less alcohol reduces the risks of alcohol-related cancers, diabetes and heart disease. It puts less pressure on the liver too.
