Metabolic Syndrome Slowed With Beer Compound
Beer is not normally associated with weight loss but a new study in mice may change that view. Metabolic syndrome issues such as obesity, type II diabetes, and high cholesterol have been curtailed by a compound found in hops, a major ingredient in beer, called xanthohumol. Mice, fed a high fat diet and the highest dose of the compound showed remarkable reductions in cholesterol levels, insulin levels, inflammation, and weight gain!
These finding are remarkable as one compound can address so many health issues at once, however don’t run out and start chugging beer. The levels demonstrated in this study are easily supplemented but you’d have to drink 3,500 pints for the equivalent!
