Beer And Fitness
Beer and fitness go hand in hand. Recent studies have suggested that beer may actually do a body good. Drinking beer in moderation can be part of a healthy lifestyle. Beer is full of vitamins and antioxidants which help to prevent heart diseases and also help to rebuild muscles.
Now let’s see how beer and fitness go together.
Good beer vs. ok beer
Generally dark beers are better and contain more antioxidants than light beers. Dark beers are healthier than light beers, especially Guinness. Similarly microbrews are considered to be better than mass-produced brews.
Beer has more energy than any other food or drink. There are about 120 calories in an average beer, and you can imagine how many calories four to five glasses of beer contain. So too much beer drinking will have a bad effect on your health. Drink beer moderately, to avoid consumption of too much calories. And beer is not an energy booster; it actually makes you sluggish and tired.
Dehydration after a workout can make you reach for a glass of water. Well did you know that beer can provide better hydration than water? But that does not mean you should have a cold beer immediately after work outs, drink water first with a fruit and have beer a couple of hours later.
Some health benefits of moderate beer guzzling!!!
Beer and nutrition: Beer is made of malt and contains vitamin B, minerals, proteins and antioxidants, and it is low in sodium and sugar.
Beer and Healthy bones: Studies show that beer contains silicon which is essential for bone formation.
Beer and a healthy heart: Studies have proved that drinking beer reduces risk of coronary heart diseases by 30 to 60 percent. The B6 contents in the beer help to reduce heart diseases.
Beer and cancer prevention: Beer is made of hops and malt which are disease fighting antioxidants, which have the ability to prevent cell damage, which causes cancer.
So the common notion that beer is loaded with “empty calories” is false. Everything in moderation…that’s the saying…too much is too bad. As far as beer is concerned, you have to make your logical decision, to determine if its benefits outweigh the risks.
