Beer drinkers live longer. Yes it is true. Moderate drinking is good for health and beer drinking is called moderate drinking. It is common sense that if you eat or drink anything too much, it’s not good for you. A lot of recent medical research indicates that if you don’t drink at all, that’s not good for you either. Numerous researches conducted on the topic prove that moderate drinkers live longer and better than the teetotallers. Beer is just right for moderate drinking because of its lower alcohol content and larger volume compared with wine or spirits. Thomas Jefferson said “Beer, if drank with moderation, softens the temper, cheers the spirit, and promotes health.”
What you should know about Beer?
Beer is a very natural drink. Beer doesn’t need preservatives because it has alcohol and hops, both of which are natural preservatives. Beer is only “processed” in the sense that bread is: It is cooked and fermented, then filtered and packaged. Beer keeps your kidneys healthy, it lowers bad cholesterol, it increases your vitamin B levels and it strengthens your bones. Beer also works great as a cure for insomnia…..have it an hour before you go to bed.
How does drinking beer help?
Beer will reduce your risk of a heart attack significantly! It is low in calories, low in carbohydrates and has no fat or cholesterol. The average beer has about 12 grams of carbs per 12-ounce serving. The U.S. Recommended Daily Allowance is 300 grams of carbohydrates in a standard 2,000-calorie diet.
It has plenty of B vitamins. Beer, especially unfiltered or lightly filtered, turns out to be quite nutritious, even with the years of suppression of those facts by various anti-alcohol groups. Beer has high levels of B vitamins, particularly folic acid, which is believed to help prevent heart attacks. Beer also has soluble fiber, good for keeping you regular, which in turn reduces the likelihood that your system will absorb unhealthy junk like fat. Beer also boasts significant levels of magnesium and potassium.
Beer is safer than water: If you are in some place where you are advised not to drink the water, the local beer is always a safer. It’s even safer than the local bottled water. Beeris boiled in the brewing process and is kept clean afterwards right through the bottle being capped and sealed, because if it isn’t, it goes bad in obvious ways that make it impossible to sell. Even if it does go bad, there are no life-threatening bacteria (pathogens) that can live in beer. So drink it, even bad beer is safer than water.
What are the other benefits of drinking beer?
Most importantly, beer fights cancer. The most amazing connection between health and beer is something called xanthohumol, a flavonoid found only in hops. Xanthohumol is a potent antioxidant that inhibits cancer-causing enzymes, “much more potent than the major component in soy,” according Dr. Cristobal Miranda of the Department of Environmental and Molecular Toxicology at Oregon State University. This xanthohumol stuff is so good for you that the Germans have actually brewed a beer with extra levels of it.
And, it’s a wrong notion that beer gives you a beer belly. The association between beer and obesity is misinterpreted. Most studies have found that people who drink beer regularly (moderately) weigh less than non-drinkers. Beer can boost your metabolism; it keeps your body from absorbing fat and makes you healthier, it does not allow you to be become disgusting slob. Just drink it in moderation, as part of a healthy diet.
So guys, what stops you from having beer?? You’ll live longer and be happier, you won’t get fat. Your metabolism will get boosted; it will improve your health and reduce your risk of clogged arteries, heart attack and cancer. Three cheers!!!!
