The Health Benefits Of Beer

  • Beerglass Light to moderate beer drinkers would decrease their chances of suffering a stroke by 20%.
  •  Consuming moderate amounts of beer would lower one's chances of coronary heart disease by 30-40%, compared to those who don't drink at all.
  •  Alcohol has also been attributed to increasing the amount of good cholesterol (HDL) in the bloodstream, as well as helping to decrease blood clots.
  •   Beer contains vitamin B6, which prevents the build-up of the amino acid homocysteine, that has been linked to heart disease. Those of us who have high levels of homocysteine are usually more prone to an early onset of heart and vascular disease.
  •  A new study performed at the TNO Nutrition and Food Research Institute in Utrecht indicates that those who drink beer had no increase in their homocysteine level, but those who drank wine or liquor had an increase of up to 10%.
  •  Beer provides a 30% increase in vitamin B6 into the blood plasma -- something that neither wine nor any other liquor can do.
  •  Beer is both fat-free and cholesterol-free.
  •  Beer has a relaxing effect on the body thereby reducing stress and helping you sleep better.
  •  Beer has proven to have positive effects on elderly people. It helps promote blood vessel dilation, sleep and urination.
