I don’t drink a lot of beer. But, I have to admit the stuff tastes good to me on moving day, St. Patrick’s Day and National Beer Day-which, in case you missed it was April 7th.
Sure, too much beer can lead to trouble, but according to my in-depth research (and by in-depth, I mean a five-minute Google search), I learned the stuff has some potential health benefits. Want the Cliff Note’s version? Belly up to the protein bar:
- According to Men’s Health: “Recent research has revealed bioactive compounds in beer that battle cancer, boost your metabolism, and more. And these benefits come on top of the oft-touted upsides of moderate alcohol intake: clot prevention, cleaner arteries and reduced stress.”
- And, a Harvard study, published in the New England Journal of Medicine, showed moderate alcohol consumption assisted in preserving the mental faculties of older women, while a Tufts University study concluded alcohol can help preserve bone density, a frequent health issue for aging females.
I’ll drink to that!
Now I really must go…on a beer run!
