Beer is good for health

New Update


According to a study conducted in Portugal, beer is good for health and it doesn’t make beer drinkers fat and is beneficial for the intestines.

Researchers from CINTESIS (the Centre for Investigation in Health Technology and Services) in Portugal have concluded that beer improves gut microbiota, a factor that has been associated with very common chronic diseases like obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

Researchers say that consuming one bottle of beer, regardless of its alcohol content, may be beneficial to the gut microbiome and intestinal health of men. However, they add that because the safest level of alcohol consumption is none, non-alcoholic beer may be the more healthful choice.

The study also pointed out that the ingestion of beer did not interfere significantly with cardiometabolic biomarkers like glucose, cholesterol and triglicerides.
