Yesterday millions of Americans parked themselves in front of the TV, ate an excessive amount of snacks, cracked open a cold one, and watched the big game. You might not have known it, but while you were watching one of the biggest sporting events of the year that beer you were drinking was helping stave of neurodegenerative disorders in your brain. A new study found that a compound in hops, a main ingredient in beer, helped protect brain cells in mice from Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s. If you feel bad for consuming processed foods, and—hopefully not—too much beer during the Super Bowl, at least your brain is a little better protected.
