Beer for your Bones?

This is an interesting study about beer. A study done in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition on pre and postmenopausal women shows that women who drank 1 or 2 beers each day had greater bone mineral density in their spines and hips than those who did not drink beer.   

Apparently, beers with high levels of malted barley contain a large amount of the mineral silicon. Silicon helps calcium and magnesium form bone. Have an ale instead of a lager. Ales have more silicon.

 Fruits( cherries, apples, oranges, raisins), veggies (cucumber, onion, cabbage, carrots, leafy greens, pumpkin, beets, bell peppers, soybeans), nuts, seeds and whole grains are also good sources of silicon. 

Let's go out for a beer!

Have a Beautiful Day!
