Drinking higher amounts of alcoholic beer can cause fainting, drowsiness, low blood sugar levels, vomiting, and other serious problems. Drinking large amounts of alcoholic beer over the long term can cause many serious health problems, including dependence, liver problems and certain types of cancer. Beer may have certain health benefits, such as reducing the risk of heart disease and osteoporosis. However, excessive or excessive consumption of beer can cause conditions such as cancer, liver disease and cardiovascular disease.
Studies have been conducted to quantify the harmful effects of drinking beer. Most of the harmful effects are related to high levels of alcohol resulting from excessive beer consumption. Additional research into the comparative effects of alcohol or phenolic constituents has been carried out using commercial dealcoholized beer. In addition to malted barley and hops, some specialty beers have added herbs and spices (see table below).
Twenty-five percent of the starch in beer is partially degraded and is present in a non-fermentable form, which adds more calories. In published research on the general health effects of beer, it is difficult to separate the effects of alcohol from those of the constituent phytochemicals, which are mainly phenolic compounds. Mild to moderate beer consumption may be associated with a lower risk of heart disease, better blood sugar control, stronger bones, and a lower risk of dementia. However, it has been discovered that, although wines have a higher phenolic content than beer, it is beer that has the highest antioxidant activity.
Research on the effects of freeze-dried beer on lipid metabolism and antioxidant activity in rat serum has demonstrated a reduction in total cholesterol and triglycerides and an increase in levels of high-density lipoprotein cholesterol. A traditional diet of beer and fresh food may be better than heavily promoted soft drinks and pre-cooked foods. Despite the fact that beer contains a variety of nutrients, people should not resort to beer because of its nutritional value. Although people view beer as a beverage with little nutritional value, it contains several nutrients.
While light or moderate beer consumption has potential benefits, excessive consumption and excessive consumption of alcohol can be extremely harmful. Compared to standard beer, light beer contains a similar amount of vitamins and minerals, but slightly fewer calories and less alcohol. The risk of cancer was investigated in Danish brewery workers who received 2.1 liters of free beer a day in 13,051 subjects. People who overconsume beer (and other alcoholic beverages) are often affected by adverse health problems, especially if they also have poor dietary intake along with a lack of exercise.
While drinking beer may have some positive health outcomes, this only seems relevant when people drink the beverage in light or moderate amounts.
