It is good!

Our beer is good for you (really!)

The Vitamin B group (including niacin, riboflavin and thiamine), is present in both wheat and barley, but at levels which are sub-optimal for basic nutritional needs. The beer fermentation process significantly increases the levels of these B- vitamins boosting their effectiveness.  They play an important role in keeping our bodies running like well-oiled machines. These essential nutrients help convert our food into fuel, allowing us to stay energized throughout the day.

Our beer also contains natural yeast that helps maintain or regain health naturally.  The excellent health properties of yeast are based on its biochemical composition that reveals a wide variety of biological elements (amino acids, minerals, vitamins, enzymes, etc.) that are needed by our bodies to function properly (growth, cell metabolism, immune system, etc.) and which our everyday diet does not always provide in sufficient quantity.

A scientific study published in 1996 found that moderate consumption of beer actually can help to prevent heart disease (John Folts, director of the Coronary Thrombosis Research and Prevention Laboratory at the University of Wisconsin).  The incidence of heart disease in those who drink moderate amounts of alcohol (no more than two drinks per day for men or one drink per day for women) is lower than in nondrinkers.  However, with increased intake of alcohol, there are increased health dangers including high blood pressure, obesity and stroke.

According to the American Heart Association (2016), alcohol appears to increase the level of ‘good’ cholesterol (HDL) in the blood.  This reduces the amount of fatty deposit (atheroma) which narrows our arteries and makes them more likely to clog.   Alcohol can also help to prevent the formation of blood clots that close off arteries, causing a heart attack. It reduces the stickiness of platelets so they are less ready to clump together to form clots.  Small amounts of alcohol with a meal can reduce the sudden rise of a protein (fibrinogen) produced by the liver, which is involved in clot formation.

Ethanol is nutritionally beneficial and can provide between 2% and 10% of the daily calories you need for survival.  Our natural beer contains NO FAT and NO CHOLESTROL!  It also contains fewer calories than milk, apple juice and wine.
