Enjoying a beer sometimes is difficult. The flavor coming off the chilled pint gives you a nostalgic feeling of vacations that might not be the best help knowing you have to go back to work the next day.
Still, we drink. We catch up or share a moment with coworkers, family, and friends. Stout, ale, lager, there are so many kinds to experience. The fact is, beer is good for the body (if you don’t drink in excess), reports The Daily Mail.
Most people associate drinking with having fun and enjoying themselves. However, few know that there are some health benefits to drinking beer – as long as you drink responsibly.
Stronger body’s defenses
Like wine, beer contains compounds that have anti-cancer effects. They can also delay the growth of fat cells, plus help reduce your risk of death from heart disease.
Even non-alcoholic beers contain compounds shown to stimulate stem cells that are good for healing and heart health, which in turn can prevent, for example, cardiovascular diseases.
A German study suggests that it can even help prevent dementia – two beers a day provide an 87% reduced risk of being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, according to The Daily Mail.
However, it’s important to drink in moderation. If you don’t, the health risks will increase instead.
Don’t drink in excess
According to the National Food Agency, a man should drink a maximum of two strong beers or 22 oz per day, and for a woman, one can or 11 oz per day.
So, drinking a couple of beers every day can be good for your health? Wonderful news!
