DRINKING a pint of beer a day improves the health of your heart, research has shown.  Scientists found blood flow to the heart improved within a couple of hours of polishing off two-thirds of a pint – and that the effect was more powerful than drinking a non-alcoholic equivalent. Non-smoking men in their late twenties and early thirties were tested. Each had their cardiovascular health measured within an hour or two of drinking 400 milliliters of beer, the equivalent of a little more than two-thirds of a pint. They later had the same tests done after drinking the same amount of alcohol-free beer or a measure of vodka. The results showed all three drinks had some beneficial effect on the stiffness of arteries around the heart, but they were most flexible - and therefore improved blood flow the most - after drinking beer.
