What You Should Know About The Intake Of Beer
The consumption of beer today has become very rampant.
Beer is an alcoholic beverage produced by the saccharification of starch and fermentation of the resulting sugar. The starch and saccharification enzymes are often derived from malted cereal grains, most commonly malted barley and malted wheat
Overtime, sentiments have trailed the analysis that comes with whether beer is good or bad. However, it is a known fact that beer has been in existence nearly as long as man has been on planet earth.
Beer as it is, includes a component of barley, malt, yeast for brewing and it is rich in the Calcium, magnesium, Sodium, phosphorous, Niacin and many more nutrients good for the health. Other research studies found out that improvements in moderate beer consumption causes increased mental health for women, improvement in the density of the bone. Infact, moderate drinkers tend to have a healthy option especially when a bottle per day is strictly adhered to. This can result in the lowering of the risk of cardiovascular diseases such as a heart problem and many more.
Should you increase the intake of beer because of these benefits?? The answer is NO. Excessive intake of beer affects the liver, heart and brain. The liver is the organ responsible for processing of alcohol in your body. When there is too much in your system, the liver will not be able to meet up with digestion and hence it quickly reaches your brain to cause conditions such as intoxication when it distorts the brain centers responsible for judgement, vision and speech.
The advantages of taking beer really has nothing to do with Alcohol, but because most beers contain much alcohol, it is usually safer to choose beers with lesser quantities of alcohol and take them in moderate quantities such as a beer per day.
You would have noticed that some people do not get intoxicated even after taking 3 – 5 bottles. That does not mean it is okay, Scientific evidence has shown that while drinking a bottle of beer per day may improve your health, drinking too much will have a negative effect on your body.
Heavy drinking or being an Alcoholic for men is more than 35 bottles per week and 21 bottles of beer for women. Too much drinking of beer leads to cardiovascular or heart disease, damage to the liver, osteoporosis or Arthritis, pancreatic damage and deficiency to thiamin and mild cancer. However, expectant or pregnant women, people suffering from drug additions or alcoholics, young people (in most countries of the world, the drinking age is 21), liver or heart disease patients, diabetic and hypertensive patients SHOULD NOT be seen near beer at all.
So you can see how very beneficial and the other way round the consumption of beer can be? Moderation is key!
