News Flash: Beer is good for you!
“Research suggests beer can help protect against Alzheimer’s disease, aid weight loss and even balance hormones – and now it’s attracting more and more health-conscious men and women.
‘If you analysed beer you would be amazed at how many super-nutrients there are in it,’ says Dr Stephan Domenig, medical director of The Original F.X. Mayr Health Centre in Austria. ‘Beer contains all of the essential – and many of the non-essential – amino acids.’

A study by Tufts University in the United States in 2009 found that moderate beer consumption can protect bone mineral density.”
