Beer is by far one of the most popular beverages of men and women around the world.  We love to crack open a cold one. But because of its high-calorie reputation, many of us might feel a little guilty when we do. No more guilt after reading these health benefits of beer!

 

1. Beer contains vitamins! A study found that beer drinkers showed 30 percent higher levels of vitamin B6 in their blood than non-beer drinkers.

2. A pale ale is rich in silicon and that's linked to better bone health.

3. If you drink about a pint of beer a day, your risk of heart disease could be lower. Drinking more than that, though, takes away those benefits.

4. Two beers a day can reduce your risk of type 2 diabetes by 25 percent.

And the list goes on! Read all about the benefits of beer here.
