Have people reprimanded you about drinking beer. Yes, it’s an alcohol but it’s more towards a health drink apparently because of the numerous benefits it give the drinker.
But as always everything should be done in moderation so before you use this as an excuse to be stupid, head right out of here.
Here’s why :
- Your kidneys become healthier
Apparently, each bottle of beer can reduce your risk to develop kidney stones by 40%. This is because beers have high water content, which is needed in order to have extremely healthy kidneys.
Care2 reported: “According to the 2011 ADA Times, beer can actually reduce your risk of kidney stones.”
- Reduces cholesterol levels
Reportedly, the fiber found in beer may reduce your levels of LDL cholesterol (or the “bad cholesterol” because it increases your risk of having a heart disease). SF Gate said that a beer bottle contains around 0.2-1 percent of dietary fiber.
- Increases your level of Vitamin B
One beer bottle allegedly contains lots of vitamins (B1, B2, B6, and B12). This was verified by CNN, who cited those vitamins B found in beers are much higher than the one in wines.
The source said: “They also say that beer drinkers had 30 percent higher levels of vitamin B6 than their non-drinking counterparts, and levels that were twice as high as those of wine drinkers.”
- It can make your bones stronger!
Apparently, drinking beer can make you have a higher bone density. This was backed up by Science Daily, who said that beer contains lots of silicon, which can help prevent osteoporosis.
Why silicon? That’s because silicon is the main ingredient for increasing the bone’s mineral density.
- Beer can help you battle your insomnia
Reportedly, beer can cure insomnia in the long run because it has lactoflavin and nicotinic acid. Insomnia Land said that generally, alcohol has the capacity to increase your levels of dopamine in the brain.
Dopamine is known as the “feel good” hormone which makes us feel calm. Apart from that, a blog said that lacto Flavin and nicotinic acid can help you rest well in your sleep.
- It can also reduce your risk of having a heart attack
Regular beer drinkers have a 40-60 percent chance of reducing their risk to have a heart attack.Daily Mail reported that traditional beers like ale and scout can cut the risk of having a heart disease.
This is due to the high amount of antioxidants found in the drink. Antioxidants can “mop up harmful chemicals thought to cause heart attacks.”
- Beer can prevent blood clots from forming to your body
It was revealed by Benefits of Beer that drinking dark-liquid beers can extremely reduce your risk to have a blood clot, particularly a bottle of Heineken.
This is due to the fact that blood clots form in your body when you do not have enough liquid with you. Since beer has high water content, it also helps you in reducing blood clots.
- It can improve your memory
Drinking beer allegedly has the ability to reduce your risk of having Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. Tech Times reported that beer has Xanthohumol as one of its flavonoids. This helps decrease the degradation of memory in both animals and humans.
- Drinking beer can help you reduce your stress levels
Beer and Health reported that drinking moderate amounts of beer can “facilitate recovery of the physical stress response.” This meant that it has the ability to reduce the feeling of anxiety and stress levels.
Reportedly, the University of Montreal said that two glasses of beer can reduce specifically work-related stress.
- Beer can make your skin look beautiful and more youthful
The source said that certain vitamins in beer can “regenerate the skin and have a positive impact on pigmentation. Your skin becomes smoother and suppler.”
Perhaps it’s the effect of Vitamin B’s or a different form of vitamin altogether.
