How many of you have had bad hangovers and
regret drinking or partying too hard? Well, we have a solution for that and its
non-alcoholic beer.

Non-alcoholic beer has 0% alcohol content and it
aims to produce the same taste as the regular beer without the effects of
standard alcoholic beers. It is known to have better effects compared to the
alcoholic beer.

Non-alcoholic beer is proven to be healthier
than the normal beer. It has about 11 calories lesser than the traditional
alcoholic beer, per cup. It is also known to help in sleeping and reduce the
feelings of anxiety.

An article published in the Neurochemical
journal says that Beer contains hops, which is a main flavoring ingredient and
a preservative. It has sedative and hypnotic properties that helps in reducing
anxiety. Likewise, it also consists of essential amino acids which help in
relaxing as they inhibit serotonin receptors in the brain (L. Franco, 2015,
April) Relaxation leads to slowing the heart rate, improving digestion and
maintaining blood sugar levels in the body. It also reduces chronic pain and
muscle pains.

Nonalcoholic beer has about 10 percent of the
recommended amount of a few different B vitamins. These vitamins contain
folate, which helps in the production of new cells in your body. It also
contains about 10% of choline and vitamin A that helps in the functioning of
nerves. Also, non-alcoholic beer contains niacin and riboflavin which helps in
digestion of food by breaking down the food molecules (ANNE, 2017)

Alcohol consumption during breastfeeding is
known to have negative effects. Hence, alcoholic beer can be replaced by
non-alcoholic beer, which can be consumed by pregnant women and new mothers.

Alcohol content in breast milk and the blood
stream are found to be equal. Also, after consumption of alcohol, the
production of the breast milk may be reduced as alcohol reduces the production
on the hormone oxytocin. Whereas, non-alcoholic beer helps in the production of
prolactin, a hormone which helps in the production of breastmilk. The reason
behind this mechanism is unknown but it could be due to some specific compounds
derived from barley, which is the main source of carbohydrate in beer. (John
Patrick Adiong, 2014, Aug)

      Currently
there is no evidence or studies to state that non-alcoholic beers do not affect
pregnancy as even non-alcoholic beer consists a little percentage of ethanol.
But it can be said that these beverages reduce the risk when compared to the
regular alcoholic beverages. So, it means that pregnant women consuming
non-alcoholic drinks are prone to consuming little amount of alcohol not just
in non-alcoholic beverages but it other types of beverages too. But these
amount of intake do not show any major effect on the baby. So, it can be
recommended to pregnant women, but it is always better to take the doctor’s opinion
into consideration before taking any further measures. (John Patrick Adiong, 2014, Aug)

Alcoholic beer is known to have positive effects
on cardiovascular health. It is the same in the case of non-alcoholic beer.

Two studies showed that poly phenols present in
beer influence cardiovascular health. In one study, men between the age groups
55-75 years were given 990ml of non-alcoholic beer each day for four weeks. It
was observed that there was a decrease in inflammation factors such as the IL-6
and a 12-16% decrease in blood pressure. In another study conducted with the
same subjects and research design, it was found that there was an increase in
the production of stem cells that repair and maintain the endothelial walls of
the blood vessels. It was concluded that these results were mostly likely
caused due to the beer component hops, which contained polyphenol and
xanthohumol. (Chiva Blanch G, 2015, jan)

In conclusion, all these researches and studies
tell us that non-alcoholic beer has better benefits when compared to alcoholic
beer. There are many advantages of this product which also include the ability
to drive after several drinks, reduction of kidney/liver damage and less
hangover symptoms apart from those mention in the above paragraphs. It can be
consumed by people on antibiotics, recovering alcoholics and pregnant women.
Hence, I think that production of non-alcoholic can help in benefiting the
society and the young generations and avoid deaths and deformities caused due
to alcoholism.
