Have a Beer!

Working outside in the hot sun, sitting inside breathing recycled air listening to soft rock or just celebrating a great night with friends, whatever your reason is, having a beer is better for your than you think!

  1. Beer keeps your kidneys healthy A Finnish study singled out beer among other alcoholic beverages, finding that it was better for your kidneys. In fact, each bottle of beer you drink reduces the risk of developing kidney stones by 40%.
  2. Beer, and especially dark beer, contains soluble fibre – unlike wine, which doesn’t contain any fibre at all
  3. The fibre in beer can also help reduce your levels of LDL cholesterol, i.e. the “bad” type of cholesterol.
  4. Beer is full of B vitamins from the yeast. Unfiltered beer is especially high in B3, B6 and folic acid (B9). B3 aids in cell repair and B6 eases PMS. Folic acid aids in colon cancer prevention. Beer is also a generous source of vitamin B12, an anti-anaemic factor not found in many foods.
  5. Multiple studies have shown that beer drinkers had an approximately 30 percent lower risk of type-2 diabetes than test subjects who abstained.
  6. Beer as a cure for insomnia Lactoflavin and nicotinic acid, which are both present in beer, can promote sleep!
  7. Beer reduces your risk of a heart attack Beer drinkers have a 40 to 60 percent reduced risk of suffering a heart attack compared with non-beer drinkers.
  8. According to studies, beer drinkers are less likely to suffer from Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. The research suggests a high intake of silicon limits aluminum absorption in the brain.
  9. Beer helps combat stress Researchers at the University of Montreal found that two glasses of beer a day can reduce work-related stress or anxiety.
  10. Beer makes skin more beautiful Good news for women! Certain vitamins in beer can regenerate the skin and have a positive impact on pigmentation. Your skin becomes smoother and suppler.
  11. Beer could keep bones strong. Researchers at Tufts University found a positive link between beer or wine consumption and hip-bone density. Heavy drinking, however, led to bone loss, according to the same study, so be conservative.
