Please help yourself to a beer tonight; it’s perfect for you!
We know beer can make you incredibly happy, BUT it has other benefits!
1) Back in 2021, research was conducted on the effects of beer on your heart health. The result? It might be good for you!
If you drink about 1.5 to 2 beers per 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 the wrong choice. People who have had a heart attack in the past also lived for over twenty years if they drank a beer regularly.
2) Beer is nutritious
That is… more nutritious than wine because beer contains more protein and B vitamins than alcoholic grape juice. This is according to a study conducted by the American Journal of the Medical Sciences. Beer also contains antioxidants, which protect you against various diseases. Good to know!
3) Decreased risk of diabetes
Drinking a beer improves not only heart health but also lowers the risk of diabetes. A study of more than 70,000 people found that people who drank about 14 drinks of alcohol per week were less likely to develop type 2 diabetes.
4) Stronger bones
We’ve all been told that milk is essential for building strong bones, but you can also have a beer! Beer seems to have the same effect on bones as milk. Indeed, silicon is an essential ingredient for strong bones. And it is found in green beans, cereals and… beer, among others!
5) A beautiful smile
Dentists often talk about the importance of brushing and flossing but never the significance of an ice-cold beer. Yet, a new study shows that even the sweetest beer has a positive impact on teeth. It plays a vital role in eliminating bacteria that cause cavities and inflammation.
In short: nothing wrong with drinking a glass of beer. So don’t forget to treat yourself this weekend. Cheers!
