Strong Beer for Strong Bones

| No TrackBacks

So we've all heard how hops with their antioxidant properties and alchohol with it's benefits can make us live longer, but wait, there are more health benefits to beer.


It is likely to strengthen your bones, according to researchers at The Rayne Institute at St Thomas' Hospital, who have studied beer for its silicon content. The mineral comes from the hops, although it can also be found in mineral water, and is believed by Prof Jonathon Powell and his team to aid bone strength and density. Dr Ravin Jugdaohsingh, a senior research fellow, said: "One serving of beer - between 300 and 600ml - will give between five and 16mg of silicon. We only consume up to 50mg a day, so it is a huge proportion of our daily intake."
