A recent study found a controversial suggestion that changes the way you drink alcohol. The report showed that taking alcohol drinks moderately, up to 6 drinks a week, may actually improve blood flow. This leads to further links of lower risks in getting heart-related diseases.

The risk gets tripled if you increase the consumption, let say, 20 to 30 drinks in a week. Cardiovascular expert, Dr. Elizabeth Mostofsky, explains the first reaction after drinking is the increased blood pressures. The findings proved that it's the immediate effects of alcohol drink that causes the clot. However, within 24 hours, it is said that only heavy drinkers pose higher risk of getting cardiovascular disease. According to Mostofsky, drinking in moderation reduces the tendency of blood clotting.

The benefits of beer are backed with scientific researches. According to CNN, beer has more vitamin B nutrient and protein than wine. Plus, it contains phosphates, calcium, iron and fiber - which make beer good for the bones and the only alcoholic beverage to give you plenty of health benefits.

Washington Post reported a theory found by researchers that alcohol improves the blood circulation in women. Women who abstained from alcohol drinks have more risk of cognitive function declines.

The long term effect on regularly drinking beer in moderate amounts appears to increase the good cholesterol level. The evidence suggests light alcohol consumption because this range reduces the stroke risk. However, for heavy drinkers, it is associated with the stroke risk. Neurologist from Duke University Medical Center, Dr. Larry B Goldstein, advises men to consume not more than two glasses per day whilst women are limited to a glass per day.

Apart from the scientific facts, beer can be your liquid alternative to replace water or broth when creating a masterpiece in the kitchen. It's time for beer to get the credit, don't you think?
