Beer Is Useful For Health

Daily beer consumption doesn't lead to weight increase, but enriches the organism with vitamins and even favors weight loss! This is the sensational discovery recently made by American scientists.

It is considered that people who like beer usually have a belly of a considerable size. The link between weight increase and beer consumption seems doubtless to many. However, scientists from Indiana have doubted that and tried to discover what lies beneath this myth.

According to the results of their research, moderate daily beer consumption doesn't lead to obesity. More than that, it turned out that one can even lose weight by simply replacing carbohydrates in his menu with beer. Besides, beer consumption prevents kidney gravels' forming, but the concrete mechanism of this process isn't known yet.

Beer is the only alcoholic drink that stimulates the secretion of gastric juice and bile, and the only one that stops the negative effects of alcohol. Its extractive substances have a calming, analgesic and even disinfecting action.

Studies made by Czech and German doctors have shown that moderate beer consumption lowers the risk of cardiovascular diseases, and also influences the regeneration of the mucous membrane in such diseases as gastritis and ulcer.

Austrian doctors consider that cool beer, especially when it's hot outside, is not only pleasant, but can also prevent heart attacks and brain hemorrhages. However, doctors underline that one must have a limit in beer consumption, otherwise beer can have a negative impact on inner organs, especially heart and liver destruction.

During almost 10 years of researches, scientists from the University of New South Wales have established the fact that men and women who drink 1 or 2 glasses of beer per day live longer than those who don't drink it. It is also known that beer lowers blood coagulability and the level of cholesterol.
