Drinking beer strengthens bones
They found that the bones of women who regularly drink beer, are stronger and therefore less likely to suffer from osteoporosis. It is believed that the high level of silicon in beer slows down the thinning leading to fractures reported in. “Nutrition”. In addition, beer is rich in phytoestrogens which maintain healthy bones. Researchers asked 1,700 women with an average age in ’48 about their habits regarding drinking alcohol. They then underwent ultrasound scans of their hands, which showed that the bones of women who drink beer are healthier. Scientists decided to explore hands as fingers first exhibit signs of osteoporosis, increasing the risk of fractures. Women who drank less than a pint per day, showed the same results as women in the moderate category, indicating that even small amounts of beer may improve bone strength.
