Are you in hangover effect or planning for the Beer party tonight? Whatever, some piece of good news for those consuming Beer. OMG! Beer consumption and good news, what are you talking about? Nothing much but the new research that has come up to say that drinking beer on daily basis helps to protect one against serious illness and the most frequent health disturbance common cold.


Drinking beer has been a social status for many. Many consider it just a drink as it has very minimal quantity of alcohol in it. Consuming beer is also said to cool down your body as it helps to lessen down the internal heat.  A Japanese brewery said citing a scientific study that consuming the key ingredient in beer helps to protect children against common flu and other serious illnesses.


A chemical compound in hops, the plant brewers use to give beer its bitter taste, provides an effective guard against a virus that can cause severe forms of pneumonia and bronchitis in youngsters, Sapporo Breweries said Wednesday. In research with scientists at Sapporo Medical University, the compound -- humulone -- was found to be effective in curbing the respiratory syncytial (RS) virus, said the company, which funded the study.


So next time you plan for the beer party and no one approves it or if someone scolds you for consuming beer, just open up this article and tell them that beer has wonderful health benefits that will help them waive off various illnesses. Spending for beer is much less than spending for medicines to treat illness. But also have a check on the amount of alcohol that is going into your body in the form of beer.


So people with the habit of consuming beer on daily basis, wondering why you don’t get illness that easily, it’s because of humulone and not alcohol. So don’t just give the excuse of health as a reason for drinking. Its just the chemical. Also don’t forget to have a well-balanced meal after consuming beer, as that is more important to give that boost of immunity. Cheers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
