Everything You Need to Know About Beer and Other Beverages

Imagine a world without beer, tea, juice and coffee. The only thing available is water. Life would be boring and tasteless like water itself. I know our bodies need water to function well because our bodies is made entirely of 60% water or maybe even more. But we all need something different. So there goes the quest for humanity to invent something different and we fell in love with it. When you wake up in the morning, the first thing that you’re looking for is probably coffee or tea. When you party with your buddies, you look for beer, whiskey and other alcoholic drinks. They are included in our daily lifestyle. Let’s cover some facts about them.

Beer and other Alcoholic Beverages

Alcoholic Beverages
It’s Not A Party Without Me

Beer is the most consumed alcoholic drink in the whole wide world. Most beer are created by brewing malted barley and some hops for flavor. It’s iconic. It tastes good. Scientists also say that beer has some anti-cancer properties and it can increase our bone density. Of course, in moderation.

Wine and other flavored spirits has a different taste of their own. Drinking wine can also provide health benefits like good heart health. Whiskey, aids in weight loss. Vodka can help with your cardiovascular health. Gin is made from juniper berries, which are full of health benefits.

I cannot stress this enough. Everything in moderation. Excessive alcohol consumption can badly hurt our bodies. So chill out every once in a while, but do everything in moderation.

Coffee and Tea
Who R U Pickin’?

Tea is the second most consumed beverage in the world. Next to water of course. Tea can be a stress reliever and it gives us antioxidants to combat free radicals in our body. It can also make you feel awake because of its Caffeine content. Coffee also has some terrific benefits like tea. It can help lower the risk of Diabetes, reduce depression and s much more. But which one is better? Depends on you. Coffee has more caffeine than tea, so when you want to feel awake, I’d pick coffee. But for relaxation, I’d pick tea. I’ll let you be the judge on this one.


Don’t be fooled by the ads that say that their fruit juice is made from natural ingredients. The better way to drink juice is to make it all by yourself. Natural made juice is packed with vitamins, nutrients and fiber. It detoxifies our body and cleanses it. It also taste good. You can visit JuicerKings to learn more about the terrific benefits of juicing.

Still, you need to limit your intake. It can hurt your tummy if drink this stuff too much especially when your stomach is acidic. Just a friendly tip. Take everything in moderation.
That’s it guys! I hope that you learned something from this article. See you next time!
