According to a study, beer has more health benefits than you might think and is better for you than soft drinks and fruit juice.

Beer contains only one teaspoon of sugar while orange juice has six and a can of Coke has seven.

Beer is filled with many essential minerals including phosphorus, iodine, magnesium, potassium and calcium. Beer can also help prevent diabetes if it is drank in moderation.

Beer also increases bile production which helps break down fatty foods while two glasses contains 10% to 30% of a person’s daily fiber requirement. The silicon in beer can also help prevent Alzheimer’s.
