Reasons why beer is actually good for you

One of the classic English proverbs, which you can often hear at the pubs, says “If you don’t drink, you don’t live longer – it just seems longer”. But actually, all the stereotypes about beer can be completely ignored. Beer allows us to live longer! Here are some scientifically proven reasons to pour a beer right now.

Beer Prolongs Life

Researchers from Virginia Tech found that people, who regularly drink beer in moderation, lower the risk of dying because of a premature death by 19%. In addition, beer helps to rejuvenate the cells of the blood vessels due to the acceleration of certain metabolic processes in the body and has a calming and analgesic effect and contributes to the inhibition of growth and reproduction of bacteria.

Beer Helps to Fight Cancer

Beer contains some ingredients that help the human body to fight cancer. This is the conclusion of researchers from the Japanese National Institute of radiology. In particular, they found xanthohumol — a flavonoid that inhibits cancer-causing enzymes.

Beer Helps the Brain to Work Normally

A study, published in the medical journal New England, found that women who drink one glass of beer a day are less likely to suffer from cognitive problems caused by aging.

Beer Actually Does Not Give the "Beer" Belly

The study, which was organized by the UCL Fund, was aimed to prove the existence of a relationship between a number of bottles a man drinks and his rounded stomach. No scientific proof of this was ever found.

"People believe that beer drinkers, on average, are more likely to suffer from obesity than others. But it's not true. If the connection between beer and obesity exists, it is insignificant," concluded the researchers.

Beer has Fewer Calories than Skim Milk or Orange Juice

Considering the content of potassium, magnesium, phosphorus, iron, copper, zinc in beer, this liquor does not differ from orange juice —a symbol of a healthy lifestyle. But in the bubbly drink, there are fewer calories. Recently, Guinness has published statistics which proves conclusively that even heavy, dark varieties of beer contain fewer calories than any sugary drink or even skim milk. Beer hops protect from Alzheimer's diseases.

Hops in Beer Protect from Alzheimer's Disease

Although beer can protect you from unpleasant states when you cannot remember what happened last night, in general, it is useful to memory rather than harmful. Xanthohumol, one of the hop compounds, according to recent research scientists, it protects the brain from age-related degenerative changes diseases like Alzheimer's and Parkinson's.

Beer is Full of Vitamins

"If you carefully analyze the chemical composition of good beer, you will be amazed by the amount of vitamins that it contains," says Stefan Domenig, Director of Mayr Health Center Centre in Austria. For example, beer has many vitamins like B1 and B2, and they are present in a form that is well absorbed. One liter of this drink will provide 40-60% of the daily requirement of thiamine (B1) and Riboflavin (B2). Beer is rich with ascorbic acid. A liter of beer will give you 70% daily dose of vitamin C. And to meet the daily requirement for nicotinic and folic acids it is enough to drink just half a cup.

Beer Strengthens You

Beer helps to maintain bone density and elasticity of the joints due to the content of silicon in an easily digestible form. Who would have thought that a glass of beer after dinner can help to create a more dense bone tissue.
