Simply the best news we’ve heard all week! The old advertising slogan “Guinness is Good for You” may be true after all, according to researchers. according to an article from BBC News,
A pint of the black stuff a day may work as well as an aspirin to prevent heart clots that raise the risk of heart attacks.
It is known that drinking lager does not yield any heart benefits and Guinness were told to stop using their popular “Guinness is Good For You” slogan decades ago – and the firm still makes no health claims for the drink. However,
The Wisconsin team tested the health-giving properties of stout against lager by giving it to dogs who had narrowed arteries similar to those in heart disease. They found that those given the Guinness had reduced clotting activity in their blood, but not those given lager.
So, why is this beautiful beverage good for you? The same researchers believe,
That “antioxidant compounds” in the Guinness, similar to those found in certain fruits and vegetables, are responsible for the health benefits because they slow down the deposit of harmful cholesterol on the artery walls.
So drink up, everyone! Guineess is Good For You!
