Living Healthy, Healthy Beer
Beer is the one of the most popular alcoholic beverages in the world. Enjoying an almost cult like status in many countries and is a favorite for millions of people around the world.

According to research piloted in Italy on moderate beer, drinking (a bit more than 16 ounces a day) can actually decrease a drinkers’ risk of heart disease

by 31 percent (the same as moderate consumption of wine). Another study done on moderate beer drinking, published in the Clinical Journal of the American Society of Nephrology, found that moderate consumption of beer reduces the risk of developing kidney stones by 41 percent. Another surprising beer fact is that beer is one of the few plant sources of vitamin B12. The B12 comes from bacteria growth in the barley grain.
Beer is also a source of plant-based phytonutrients (found in the barley and hops) but that doesn’t mean you can replace your healthy greens for a cold one.
