A new study says a moderate amount of beer intake has a surprisingly good effect on the brain!

Light or moderate consumption of beer could decrease the risk of brain diseases like Alzheimer’s, new research finds!

The study looked at different types of alcohol intake — beer, wine and spirits — and the link to neuropathological signs of Alzheimer’s.

The study took data from 125 people in Finland who had passed away suddenly between 35 and 70 years old.

Their brains showed that those who drank light or moderate amounts of beer had less amyloid plaques, which are thought to be important in the development of Alzheimer’s disease.


Consumption of wines or spirits, though, was not linked to the amount of amyloid found in the brain.


This is not the first study to link alcohol intake with a lower risk of dementia.
