To those of you who enjoy a cold one after a long day's work, on a hot summer's day or the weekly Thursday night happy hour, cheers to you for drinking for your health! That's right, recent research reveals that the consumption of beer does the body good. No, this is not a green light for a boozing binge, but in moderation, your body will benefit from this refreshing beverage in numerous ways.
Everyday Health gives us 5 reasons to head into Daphne's and tap into an ice-cold beer!
Currently featuring: Primo, Fat Tire, Amstel Light and Ballast Point at select locations.
1. A Stronger Skeleton
Due to its high silicon content (which helps stimulate bone-building cells), beer in moderation may protect those bones! According to the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, those who sipped one or two beers a day had greater bone mineral density than those who drank more or fewer beers.
2. Heart Disease Fighter
Believer it or not, alcohol raises the levels the 'good' HDL cholesterol and contains anti-clogging effects which help ward off heart attacks and strokes.
3. Healthier Kidneys
Research has shown that the high water content in beer along with its hops help lower the risk of kidney stones, which happens when the body experiences dehydration, and deposits of salt and minerals form in your kidneys.
4. Better Brain Power
While boozing to the extreme may cause brain damage, moderate consumption can help keep the mind sharp. According to a New England Journal of Medicine study, women who had up to one drink a day (over more than a period of 15 years) had a 20 percent lower risk of brain function decline than nondrinkers.
5. Lower Cancer Risk
Don’t just drink it. Eat it! According to a Portuguese study, marinating steak in the tasty brew could eliminate up to 88 percent of carcinogens (a cancer-causing substance) that form when cooking meat at high temperatures.
