We already brought you part one of our list of the top 12 health benefits of drinking beer, and now we’re back with part two! Check out six more fascinating ways your health will improve every time you drink beer. Skeptical? We can’t blame you, but we swear, it’s science. You might be surprised by what you find out!
Number Six: It Reduces Risk of Heart Attacks. Compared to people who don’t drink it, beer drinks have a 40 to 60 percent reduced chance of suffering a heart attack. Now there’s a statistic that just might give us a heart attack!
Number Five: It Prevents Blood Clots. The special ingredients in the magical brew not only help you feel invincible, they make you invincible as well. One study found that drinking beer will reduce your risk of blood clots.
Number Four: It Improves Your Memory. Though drinking too much might actually cause you to lose your memory, drinking beer in moderation will help your memory get better! People who drink brew are less likely to have Alzheimer’s disease and dementia than people who don’t drink. So it’s a good idea to drink up because you might end up with dementia anyway!
Number Three: It Decreases Stress. But is this really such a surprise? According to a Canadian study, drinking two brews a day will help reduce stress and anxiety levels in the long run – especially the stress or anxiety related to work (like we said – not much of a surprise).
Number Two: It Will Cure Your Cold. It’s science! When barley is heated, it will improve your blood flow and circulation, and it will also help you breathe more easily. Because beer contains barley, all you have to do is warm a bottle of brew up for a few minutes, and add some honey if you want to make it sweet.
Number One: It Improves Your Skin. The vitamins contained in beer are so strong that they can even help improve the condition of your skin! Though alcoholics often have red, blotchy faces, drinking brew in moderation can actually make your skin more lustrous and beautiful. Cheers!
