Yes, beer is healthier than we expected it to be: these are 5 health benefitsjessie tan
Pour yourself a beer tonight, it’s actually good for you!
We know beer can make you incredibly happy, BUT there are more benefits to it!
1. Back in 2021, a research on the effects of beer on your heart health was conducted. The result? It might actually be good for you!
If you drink about 1.5 – 2 beers a day, (let’s assume two for convenience) it reduces the risk of a heart attack. Even for people who already suffer from heart problems, drinking beer is not a bad choice. People who have had a heart attack before also lived for more than twenty years if they had a beer regularly.
2. Beer is nutritious
That is to say…more nutritious than wine, because beer contains both more protein and vitamin B than the alcoholic grape juice. That’s what a study conducted by the American Journal of the Medical Sciences reports. Beer also contains antioxidants, which protect you from a variety of diseases. Good to know!
3. Lower risk of diabetes
Drinking an ale doesn’t only improve heart health, it also lowers the risk of diabetes. A study involving more than 70,000 people concluded that people who drank about 14 glasses of alcohol a week were less likely to develop type 2 diabetes.
4. Stronger bones
We’ve all been told that milk is important for strong bones, but you can have a beer as well! In fact, beer appears to have the same effect on your bones as milk. This is because silicon is an important ingredient for firmer bones. And these are found in green beans, cereals and… beer, among other things!
5. Beautiful smile
Dentist often talk about the importance of brushing and flossing, but never about the importance of an ice-cold beer. Yet a new study shows that even the mildest beer has a positive impact on your teeth. It plays an important role in removing bacteria that cause cavities and inflammation.
In short: nothing wrong with a glass of beer. So don’t forget to indulge yourself this weekend. Cheers to your health!
