If you're a dude, you can thank beer for helping you find love, inspiring some of your best stories, and bringing your worst dance moves to the forefront. However, it turns out that there are a plethora of other great, scientifically based reasons to enjoy a good brew. Beer protects your spirit, enhances your immunity, strengthens your bones, and so much more. That's it; get ready to drink.
1. Protecting Your Heart
Typically, wine is lauded as the alcoholic beverage that lowers the risk of cardiovascular disease, but a drink may be just as heart-healthy as beer. Moderate beer drinkers had a 42 percent lower chance of heart disease than non-drinkers, according to Italian researchers. The researchers recommend that you limit your alcohol consumption to one pint a day, which is around 5% alcohol by volume.
2. Think Like a Genius
Drinking a beer or two would not make you smarter, according to a study published in the journal Consciousness and Cognition, but it can boost your imagination. As 40 men watched a movie while solving verbal puzzles, beer-buzzed guys with a blood alcohol level of.075 solved the problems a few seconds faster than their sober counterparts.
3. Prevent Type 2 Diabetes
Dutch researchers surveyed 38,000 male health professionals and discovered that when men who were not heavy drinkers began drinking gradually for four years, they were significantly less likely to be diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. Increased alcohol consumption over time in men who already drank a few drinks per day did not reduce the risk, suggesting that moderation is the key.
Tonight at Happy Hour, limit yourself to one or two beers.
4: Take Care of Your Kidneys
I'm relieved that I'll never have to deal with another kidney stone. Researchers in Finland discovered that drinking a bottle of beer every day reduces a man's risk of kidney stones by 40%. The researchers don't go into depth about the correlation, but they speculate that excessive fluid intake not only makes for an excessive number of trips to the bathroom but also helps the kidneys function properly. The researchers also believe that hops in beer are to blame for the connection, as they help to slow calcium release from the bone, which could then be reabsorbed by the kidneys as painful stones.
5. Faster Recovery
According to a Spanish report, a strong brew will aid in workout recovery. Researchers made students exercise until their body temperature reached 104 degrees, then forced them to rehydrate with beer or water. It turns out that those who drank a post-workout pint were significantly more hydrated than those who drank water.
6. Get an Instant Confidence Boost
According to British researchers, the more drinks people consume, the more attractive they become. In a second study, the researchers asked participants who had ingested either a true or a fake alcoholic beverage to give a voice. Individuals who assumed they were buzzed gave themselves more positive self-assessments when asked to rate how good-looking, intelligent, and funny they felt during their conversation, regardless of whether they were buzzed or not.
7. Get a Better Picture
An eye doctor will stay away from him if he drinks a Guinness every day. Canadian researchers discovered that one daily beer, especially a lager or stout, increases antioxidant activity, which can prevent cataracts from forming in the eyes. The kicker: the scientists discovered an inverse association in participants who drank three or more drinks a day.
8. Lower Your Blood Pressure
High blood pressure can cause a number of health problems, but research suggests that beer can reduce the risk of hypertension. In one study, Harvard researchers discovered that moderate beer drinkers had lower blood pressure than those who consume wine or cocktails.
9. Fight Against Infection
Drinking one or two drinks a day, according to an Oregon Health & Science University report, will boost your immune system and help you fight infections. Scientists vaccinated smallpox monkeys and then gave some of them access to alcohol while others were given sugar water. The monkeys who drank moderately had greater vaccine reactions than the ones who ate the sweet stuff. The animals who drank heavily, on the other hand, had a lower response to the vaccine than those who regulated their behaviors.
10. Prevent a Fracture
A research from Tufts University found that, aside from the unpleasant effects of drunken debauchery, a few drinks a day could actually strengthen your bones. According to the study, men who drank one or two beers had up to 4.5 percent higher bone density than non-drinkers, but men who drank more than two beers had up to 5.2 percent lower density.
