The Shocking Health Benefits of Beer

While the topic of ‘beer being beneficial’ is a controversial one and has been hotly debated, several studies have been conducted in the past which come to a conclusion that beer really has health benefits. These benefits are generally not known by people, and the culprit behind this is the notoriety of the beverage. If you are a beer-fan and looking for motivations to make peace with the habit, here are a few shocking benefits of beer that we bet will leave you amazed. 1. Reduced chances of getting kidney stones A study conducted in the recent past suggests that drinking beer tends to lower down the risk of a person getting kidney stones. In fact, it also said that the risks keep declining with increased consumption of the drink. A team of researchers from Finland, under the supervision of Doctor Tero Hirvonen from the National Public Health Institute of Helsinki, conducted this study on middle-aged men with a huge sample size of 27,000. The outcome of the research read: “Each bottle of beer consumed per day was estimated to reduce risk by 40 per cent." This is probably the reason behind Irish pubs in Arlington always being crowded and such businesses being so successful. 2. Protection against cardiac arrest Certain types of beer including dark ales and stouts can significantly reduce the risk of heart attack or cardiac arrest in those who consume it. And the same was confirmed by a research conducted by students at the University of Scranton in Pennsylvania. It is the fatty substance around your heart that causes the walls of the arteries to fur-up and results in heart attacks. This substance is what the beer works against to diminish the risk. Nonetheless, moderation is the key and you must not forget that. 3. Lowered risk of strokes The American Stroke Association and Harvard Medical School have played a significant role in increasing profits for Irish bars in Arlington by revealing that those who drink beer moderately have the risk of strokes up to a 50pc in comparison to those who don’t. Beer interrupts the formation of blood clots in your body that result in strokes and help normalize the blood flow. And when there are no clots, there will be no strokes. 4. Stronger bones Silicon is a substance that encourages bone growth and makes them stronger. Yes, you guessed it right; this is what beer contains that enables it to strengthen your bones. This fact too is backed by profound research conducted at the Tufts University in Massachusetts. But then again, you have to make sure you don’t overdose. Too much beer can possibly work in the exact opposite manner. You will either get weak bones or fractures by tripping due to being overly intoxicated or both. 5. Reduced odds of becoming diabetic This comes like a pleasant surprise to many. A research conducted on middle-aged men at the Harvard University in 2011 concluded that those who drink no more than two glasses of beer a day have a reduced risk of becoming diabetic. The risk is reduced by as much as 25pc. And the list goes on! So, if you are holding back from having the beverage you love the most just because you thought it would cause health problems, you know where you should be heading right now.
