Wife stopping you beer binge? Show her these top 10 benefits of drinking beer!
Beer is love, beer is life. This effervescent ambrosia slips from the mug and plays an exciting game with your taste buds. The intoxication following the stimulating adventure takes you on a trip down the street of bliss with frequent stops at the toilet.
Sadly, most of you beernauts have a space monster spelled W-I-F-E chasing after you. We’d understand if you were a fat alcoholic bum, but a single can at the end of the day, and all that nag? Nope, not happening! It’s time to let your wife know what beer is all about. Here are the top 10 benefits of drinking beer that you should show your wife. We’re sure she’ll chug along after reading them 😉
Beer is all-natural and it does not contain preservatives or additives as a lot of obnoxious teetotallers will tell you. In fact, natural produces like milk sometimes come with preservatives to keep them from going bad. The more the beer ages, the better it gets!
Beer has a flavonoid compound called xanthohumol. It’s found hops, the natural seeds that increase the bitter quotient of beer. Beer with a good hop quantity is quite helpful in preventing cancer. Beer also has polyphenols, products of fermentation. These also help fight cancer.
Low on calories
Beer is quite low in calories as compared to other liquors. A single peg of Old Monk can have almost 70 calories. Drink a mug of Budweiser Select 55, and you’ll only put on 55 calories. To burn double the calories with only 10 minutes of running!
Keeps you hearty
Beer protects your heart with vitamin B6. The vitamin averts homocystwine build-up which increase the possibility of your blood clotting and causing blockage in the coronary arteries. Cholestrol and plaque build-up are also prevented in the blood vessels.
This is quite opposite to what a lot of people believe. Drinking beer in moderation keeps type-2 diabetes under check.
Keeps the stones away
Do you feel a sharp pain in your kidneys or gall bladder? It might be due to calcium deposits, commonly called kidney/gall-stones. Drinking beer enriches you with potassium and magnesium. These compounds protect against stones and also dissolve the smaller stone variants.
Pumps you red
Apart from lowering your blood pressure, beer protects you from anemia as it is a good source of folic acid and vitamin B12.
Beer cleanses your gastrointestinal tract, thanks to the fibers. We’re sure your post-beer-binge mornings are great, unless you have a hangover.
Safer than water
Beer is safer than the local water. While an ordinary glass of water may have salmonella, and e coli, a can of processed beer only has magic and thirst-satiation properties.
This is the reason why a lot of people prefer beer sessions after work. Beer kills stress and helps you sleep better.
Bonus: Beer belly is a myth
Researchers at the University College of London and the Institut Klinicke a Experimentalni Mediciny in Prague in 2003 exposed that there is no connection between the amount of beer one drinks and the size of their bellies. “There is a common notion that beer drinkers are, on average, more ‘obese’ than either non-drinkers or drinkers of wine or spirits,” the researchers explained. However, they also said, “The association between beer and obesity, if it exists, is probably weak.”
