Beer is the 5th most consumed beverage in the world. Yes, you read that right! What is more surprising is that the others in the top 5 are non-alcoholic beverages. So, what drives it to the top 5? The bitter tasting alcoholic drink (for some) has numerous fans around the world and certainly also the ones who don’t like it! Let’s give you 7 reasons why people love beer so much!
1. Tastes good. No?
Pretty controversial. But, Beer has so many types and flavors that you might end up getting something that suits your taste buds. You would be surprised to know that the world's longest hangover lasted 4 weeks after a Scotsman consumed 60 pints of beer. So, someone ended up getting a great tasting beer.
2. Refreshes you
What can be better than having a chilled beer on a hot day? Beer is great at hydrating and that fothering beautiful looking beer can really cool you down and refresh you.
3. Cares for your kidney
Don’t be surprised but research shows that beer consumption can actually lower the risk of kidney stones. No, other drinks don’t actually give the same benefit. So, hold your thought.
4. A bone strengthener
So, this is more of a health benefit but it’s enough for anyone to switch to beer right away! The high level of silicon in beer ensures better bone density and who doesn’t want this?
5. A mood soothener
Though beer is alcoholic, but due to its low alcoholic content, it makes you feel comfortable and the chances of alcohol taking over you are really low unless you’re not guzzling a strong beer with high alcohol content.
Did you know?
The strongest beer in the world has a 67.5% alcohol content.
6. It’s fiber-rich
The fiber in beer? Yes, an average beer contains up to 20% of daily fiber intake and take a good rich craft beer and you might see the number touching up to 60% in a liter. It slows down your digestion which helps in reducing cholesterol levels, perhaps the only level that no one wants higher!
7. Reduces chances of heart attacks
Need more reason why it’s so loved? Beer is known to make arteries more flexible, hence improving blood flow. Who doesn’t wants to keep the engine running efficiently?
So, what are you waiting for? Pick up your favorite bottle of beer and fall in love with it.
