Our favorite beer of the week is North Coast Brewing Co. Scrimshaw Pilsner. It’s a brilliant golden amber color, with canned peach, tangerine peel, caramel chocolate cake, and yeasty bread dough aromas. A frothy entry leads to a dryish light-to medium body of toast, dried stone fruit, and tangerines. Finishes with a canned peach and marmalade fade.
So you don’t think beer is good for you? Well actually when consumed moderately the benefits of beer are pretty surprising! Check out the following 15 positive effects of beer.
1. Beer reduces the incidences of kidney stone formation by dissolving away particles and toxins before the clump together to form larger deposits, which then have to pass through the urinary system in a very painful process.
2. Beer lowers blood insulin which reduces likelihood of atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries). Beer improves blood circulation.
3. The foliates (water soluble B vitamin) in beer lower the risk of coronary diseases by as much as 30%.
Light beer drinking reduces the chances of strokes by as much as 20%.
4. Beer has Flavanoids (natural plant oxidants) that fight free radicals in the body which are associated with many diseases including cancer.
5. The flavanoids in beer have estrogen-like properties from which it is possible to develop natural hormone replacement therapies for post-menopausal women. Dark beer has more flavanoids. By raising the level of HDL (good cholesterol) beer can lower the risk of blood clots that cause strokes and thrombosis. This happens through the improved lining of blood vessels that reduces the chance of blood clot formation.
6.Beer is increasingly being touted for reducing the onset of several diseases related to natural aging. The silicon in beer is also good for making the bones stronger and healthier. It increases bone density and helps avoid osteoporosis.
7.Beer promotes relaxation, lowers stress levels and improves sleeping.
8. Among the elderly, there are proven benefits in the areas of sleep, urinary function, bone density and widening of blood vessels.
9.The silicon in beer counters the neurotoxins that are associated with Alzheimerâs disease.
10. Beer drinking appears to reduce the onset of dementia.
11. Beer is over 90% water which means it’s good for flushing out the kidneys.
12. Studies have shown that beer improves the mental capacity in seniors especially in women. It has a positive effect on short-term memory, reasoning capacity and concentration.
13. It is mostly free of bacteria due to the techniques employed during brewing.
14. Hair conditioned with beer benefits from an improved sheen and glow.
15. Beer is an excellent ingredient in batters, gravies and soups. It also serves as a very good meat tenderizer.
