Yes, beer is healthier than we expected it to be: these are 5 health benefits

3. Lower risk of diabetes

Drinking an ale doesn’t only improve heart health, it also lowers the risk of diabetes. A study involving more than 70,000 people concluded that people who drank about 14 glasses of alcohol a week were less likely to develop type 2 diabetes.

4. Stronger bones

We’ve all been told that milk is important for strong bones, but you can have a beer as well! In fact, beer appears to have the same effect on your bones as milk. This is because silicon is an important ingredient for firmer bones. And these are found in green beans, cereals and… beer, among other things!

5. Beautiful smile

Dentist often talk about the importance of brushing and flossing, but never about the importance of an ice-cold beer. Yet a new study shows that even the mildest beer has a positive impact on your teeth. It plays an important role in removing bacteria that cause cavities and inflammation.

In short: nothing wrong with a glass of beer. So don’t forget to indulge yourself this weekend. Cheers to your health!
