Beer

beer_hops_study_articleHold onto that beer! Research done by Jianguo Fang and colleagues of Lanzhou University show that a compound in hops, xanthohumol, protects neuronal brain cells and slows down the development of brain disorders such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s  and other neurodegenerative diseases. The compound potentially can prevent or slow down oxidative damage to neuronal cells.

While beer isn’t a cure for these diseases, it’s still a great reason to have that pint. Prevention, you know. And another delicious reason to love hops! Thank you, hops. xxx
