Health in a Glass of Beer

Even though doctors always stress the bad side of consuming alcoholic drinks, drinking beer in moderation can be medicine. Beer lovers can put a smile of their faces, because it has been scientifically proven that beer has its positive effects on health. Of course, this is connected to drinking in moderation.

Anti-cancer effects

An element found in hops, from which beer is made, has an anti cancer effect. Scientists are currently studying the possibility of using that ingredient in manufacturing medicine for treating some types of tumors.

Source of vitamins

Every glass of beer is a rich source of vitamin B6, which has been proven to have positive effects in lessening heart disease. Also, it has been shown that people who regularly drink beer have lower cholesterol and fat in their blood, and therefore a healthier cardiovascular system.

American-Finnish researchers conducted a study which proves that beer drastically reduces the danger of kidney stones by 40%.

Improves memory

Research by a Swedish team proved something very interesting. The brains of mice that were given the optimal amount of alcohol produced new brain cells. The same research showed that people who drink a few glasses of beer per week in their old age, have less problems with memory. Beer also slows down bodily signs of aging.

Awakens and relaxes

Even though there is no caffeine in beer, it has been shown that is has a slight wakening effect, and improves your mood by prompting the secretion of serotonin.

Beer does not contain too much alcohol, but only just enough to have a relaxing effect on the brain which reduces stress and with that reduces the possibility of falling sick to a disease which results from constant stress.

    I have one question. Where's the "head". My beertender uses her finger to keep it from over flowing. That does bother me somewhat, but maybe it adds flavor.
    I can't have much, but when I do, it is usually with pizza.
