Alcohol Best for Pain Relief



As strange as it may sound, alcohol is a stronger painkiller than paracetamol, a recent UK study has found.

After a night out drinking whether you’ve over indulged or not, it’s common to have a headache the next day. Well you may want to reach for a beer instead of paracetamol.

Greenwich University researchers found that alcohol, although not a good long term plan for pain relief, is better at addressing pain that  traditional painkillers.

Increasing your blood alcohol level to 0.08 actually also increases your pain threshold and has a similar effect on the body as codeine.
