Finally, A Diet I Can Live With April 27, 2016Posted by geoff in News.
Ha!! They called me crazy, but I knew I was on to something!
When it comes to health benefits and alcohol, antioxidant-rich red wine is usually the drink drawing all the praise.
But beer — carbs and calories notwithstanding — also has its upsides, with studies showing the beverage can help prevent kidney stones, strengthen bones, and aid your digestive system.
Now, scientists have discovered another health advantage in your brew: A compound called xanthohumol, a flavonoid naturally found in hops, can be a boon for weight loss and may help scientists create a novel approach to addressing obesity. Tests have also shown xanthohumol can lower cholesterol and blood-sugar levels.
Bwahaha!! Beer! Is there anything it can’t do!?!
But there’s one leetle glitch:
To derive any benefits of xanthohumol from beer, you’d have to do the impossible and guzzle 3,500 pints per day.
Impossible? Probably. But a man has to have goals.
