Turn down, for what?!
It’s St. Patrick’s Day and the green beer is already flowing, but before you decline your pint, there are actually some great health benefits you can get from the
nectar of the gods beverage.
We already told you how it can help fight off colds, but there are other benefits too!
For example, did you know that beer provides natural antioxidants, helps rebuild muscle, prevents heart disease, AND is one of the highest energy foods or drinks out there?!
ONLY if you have just one, though! No need for excess when it comes to our health.
Also, since it’s 93 percent water, it won’t dehydrate you as much as you think — and some studies say it hydrates better than water if you’re sweatin’ to the oldies in the sun.
Now the question is which one to drink…
The lighter beers are low in calories, but also low on health benefits. Your darker beers, like Guinness, will have more antioxidants that help reverse naturally occurring cellular damage, and it has more iron!
If you want to get REALLY healthy, some microbrews are hoppier than the bigger brands! That means you’ll benefit from lower cholesterol, fight off cancer, and destroy viruses!
So, what are you waiting for?
Get out there and drink some beer… unless your name is Justin Bieber because you’re not 21 yet, JB!
