Perceived Health Benefits of Micro-Brewery Beer
Micro-Brewery Beer Vs Bottled Beer: All beers are made from grains, water, and yeast. Wheat and barley are the most commonly used of these grains (cheaper beers use corn and rice), both of which are loaded with a variety of vitamins that survive the fermentation and filtering process, and the vitamin value of the yeast (the source of the high concentrations of Vitamin B6 prevents the build-up of the amino acid homocysteine that has been linked to heart disease) is conserved in unfiltered beers that only Micro-Breweries Serve. Normal off the shelf market beers are filtered and thus have a much lower value of good nutrients compared to microbrewery beers.
Chemical/Enzyme free: Micro-Brewery beers are both chemical and enzyme free conversely the normal off the shelf commercially bottled beers have a high percentage of chemical preservatives that lend them shelf life accompanied with enzymes that help in their rapid fermentation.
Antioxidants: Beer contains a similar amount of antioxidants as red wine and five times as many antioxidants as white wine.
Good Cholesterol: Alcohol in general has also been shown to have the ability to increase the amount of good cholesterol (HDL) into the bloodstream and helping to decrease blood clots.
Beer Vs Wine: A recent study performed at the TNO Nutrition and Food Research Institute in Utrecht indicates that those who drink beer had no increase in their homocysteine level over a measured period of time; in contrast, those who drank wine or liquor still had some increase.
Healthy Bones: Dr. Katherine Tucker in 2004 “participated in a study that showed beer, either dark or light, protects bone mineral density,” reported The Harford Courant. According to Tucker—who is associate professor of nutrition at the Friedman School of Nutrition, Science, and Policy—alcoholic beverage contains high levels of an ingredient which allows the deposit of calcium and other minerals into bone tissue.
The health value of beer has actually been known, documented, and applied for centuries, although the facts about beer are often covered up or obscured by those who abstain
