Malang’s Vitamin B Complex-fortified Beer?

For the social drinkers, the alcoholics and the occasional drinkers there is now a new beer in the works to help relieve some of your drinking guilt. It's called Vitamin Beer and is laced with Vitamin B.

What's so special about B vitamins? The benefits of B vitamins include: maintain healthy skin and muscle tone, enhance immune and nervous system function, promote cell growth and division, reduce the risk of pancreatic cancer, and they also help fight the symptoms of stress, depression, and cardiovascular disease.

As you can see B vitamins are pretty important. Unfortunately, when drinking an excessive amount of alcohol Vitamin B is lost. Luckily, for all the alcoholic drinkers out there, Filipino inventor Virgilio "Billy" L. Malang has invented Vitamin Beer to help replenish Vitamin B.

Vitamin Beer has yet to be marketed, but it has already won a "gold medal at the European Union-sponsored Genius-Europe competition at the Budapest Fair Center in Hungary in May 2004 and bagged the Romanian Ministry Education and Research Cup among 1,000 inventions by 540 inventors from 46 countries."

What do you think about Vitamin Beer? Think it really works? For more on Vitamin Beer, Virigilio Malang or his inspiration behind vitamin beer visit the link, Philippine Daily Inquirer .

Illegal

Vitamin beer began 100s of years ago in Germany. It was promptly outlawed. Since then, dozens of countries have seen an attempt at such a proposal.

There have been lots of examples over the years: Schlitz's Sunshine Vitamin Brew, Gales Vitamin Beer, Vita Brew, Stampede Light. You can find some of these labels on ebay. However, none have successfully pulled off a market campaign before being slapped down by legislation, public outcry or advertising standards boards. Stampede is still in existance, but their packaging or advertising now cannot mention a word about the vitamins floating inside.

From an invention standpoint, there is a few design flaws. Several studies have shown that beer prevents the absorption of vitamins. It is a bit like rubbing an aspirin tablet on your forehead to relieve a headache. However, like all things, there is flip side to the story: Beer drinkers had a 30% increase of vitamin B6 in blood plasma, but, surprisingly, increased vitamin B6 levels were also observed in the wine and spirit groups (17% and 15%, respectively).
