Drinks are an important part of our lives, and we choose them for a variety of reasons, including thirst, fun, flavor, energy, hunger, boredom, cooling down, and even warming up. Personal preference is determined by your age, stage of life, lifestyle, and the event. Many beverages are also consumed during our social gatherings with family and friends, as well as at special events and holidays.
Beer is an alcoholic drink made by extracting raw components with water, boiling them (typically with hops), and fermenting them. Beer is defined by legislation in some countries, such as Germany, where the standard ingredients, besides water, are malt (kiln-dried germinated barley), hops, and yeast.
Beer-like beverages are manufactured in Japan (sake, made from rice) and Mexico (pulque, from agave). Malted sorghum, millet, and maize (corn) are commonly used to make native beers such as Bouza, burukutu, pito, and tshwala in most of Africa.
You can easily find the best beer, but before buying it, let us help you know the pros and cons of drinking beer.
1. Enhances brain skills with age:
When compared to non-drinkers, elderly men who have a history of drinking one alcoholic drink per day appear to have the greater general cognitive capacity in their late 70s and 80s. Drinking more than four alcoholic drinks per day during middle age, on the other hand, appears to be associated with much lower cognitive ability later in life.
Congestive heart failure There is some evidence that drinking one to four alcoholic beverages per day lowers the risk of heart failure in adults aged 65 and up.
2. Reduce chances of diabetes:
Moderate alcoholic drinkers appear to have a lower chance of getting type 2 diabetes. When compared to non-drinkers with t2d, people with diabetes who take small amounts of alcohol appear to have a lower risk of cardiovascular diseases. The risk reduction is comparable to that observed in healthy individuals who consume light to moderate amounts of alcohol.
1. Makes you Fat:
One significant adverse effect of beer consumption concerns your waistline. A large beer can have up to 300 calories, which is equivalent to a medium plate of McDonald’s french fries. Assume you went out to dinner, then met up with some buddies and drank four or five beers. It’s easy to see why beer is such a big source of weight gain.
Beer is a primary cause of dehydration in the body. When consumed in large quantities, beer can cause serious and even fatal dehydration. If you’ve ever woken up with a hangover so severe that your head is pounding and you can hardly stand, dehydration is most likely to blame.
Although beer is perceived to be less harmful than heavier drinks such as vodka or whiskey, the negative effects of beer can be serious and dangerous. It goes without saying that beer is a collegiate staple. It is by far the most popular alcoholic beverage in America, both around campus. But if you go for another beer, educate yourself about the major downsides of beer consumption, and remember that moderation is key.
