Beer has been around for hundreds of years for a lot of different reasons, some of them beneficial to your health. In the Middle Ages, beer was drunk instead of water because the water was typically unsafe to drink. So people of all ages, including children, would drink alcohol instead of water. Because beer has a lot of carbohydrates and some protein, it also survived as some nourishment in a time when most people could not afford food regularly.
Micro and Macro Nutrients
Every food and drink we consume contains chemicals that our body needs. Macronutrients are things our bodies need to survive, like protein, vitamins, and minerals. Micronutrients are macronutrients we need smaller amounts of like vitamin B, magnesium, and zinc. Beer is packed with various nutrients. However, too much of anything is not good for anyone. Beer contains a lot of carbohydrates that fuel your body, but it also has antioxidants, vitamin B, and protein.
Do I Need Silicon?
Yes, actually, a small amount of silicon should be present in your diet. Micronutrients like silicon, folate, and niacin, are found in a small number of dietary foods, and many people take them as supplements instead. Silicon specifically has been linked to stronger bone density in men. Plasticity in the brain and neurological system involves silicon, an important part of bone and brain function.
Beer Combats Inflammation
Unless you have an allergy or intolerance to gluten, beer can help calm inflammation in your body. With links to prebiotics in the gut, beer has been linked to improved symptoms. Many studies look at the links between beer and lowered risks for diabetes and maintaining the good cholesterol in your body. However, it is important to realize that the health benefits will show up only if consumed in moderation with any alcohol. Drinking too much alcohol over a long period of tie can lead to serious health issues. Always drink responsibly and enjoy our extensive local craft beer selection.
