You won’t hear your Dr. tell you to drink two beers instead of taking pills, but I can’t see any downsides here.
A new study from the University of Greenwich in England found that drinking TWO BEERS is actually better for pain relief than TYLENOL. In their study, people who drank after a minor injury reported 25% less pain than people who took Tylenol.
In another study that I did on my own, I found that drinking one to many beers actually caused pain when participants hit the floor! but that is neither here nor-there.
The researchers went on to say that getting your blood-alcohol level into the “slightly drunk” zone, quote, “produces a small elevation of pain threshold [and a] moderate to large reduction in pain intensity.” Now you know.
