Beer vs Tylenol: Which is the Better Pain Reliever?
A recent study shows that beer can be a powerful pain reliever, so next time you feel that headache coming on and you are out of Tylenol, you may have an alternative option.

A recent study, published in The Journal of Pain, led by Dr. Trevor Thompson from the University of Greenwich, found that raising your blood alcohol content to the legal limit of .08%, or about three or four beers, raises your pain threshold significantly.
Based on the research, Thompson says alcohol is an effective pain reliever that “delivers clinically-relevant reductions in ratings of pain intensity.” What was surprising was that the study tested a variety of pain relievers both alcoholic and run of the mill and beer was actually shown to be more powerful than paracetamol, also known as acetaminophen or Tylenol.
This solution is likely to be more effective for people with a high alcohol tolerance, as knocking back a six-pack to cure your headache may just postpone your headache to the next morning when it appears as a hangover. For that scenario we offer these remedies. But then again who are we to question science?
