Miracle Beer?

Miracle Beer?

Those of you who enjoy a few pints of beer, but dislike the fact that it is fattening and can give you headaches, may find a new beer coming from India to be just what you are looking for.

The beer, called Ladybird Bio Beer, claims to cut cholesterol and eases conditions such as asthma and arthritis. However, it will be as alcoholic as the average beer available in Britain.

The beer was invented by Srinivasa Amarnath, and contains ingredients to stop drinkers getting a hangover.

Ladybird Bio Beer is 5% proof, and contains extracts of aloe vera and the herbs phyllanthus niruri and ashwagandha; these allegedly have medicinal qualities.
It was launched in India last year, and is proving to be enormously popular over there.

Amarnath claims that a regular intake of the beer will help to prevent ulcers, gastric problems and "other harmful effects of drinking".

Bio beer will initially be sold in bars and restaurants from this week, priced at £1.89 for a 650-millilitre bottle.
