"A study found that the bones of women who drink beer regularly are stronger, making them less likely to suffer from osteoporosis," Ben Leach writes in The Daily Telegraph.
"It is thought that the high level of silicon in beer slows down the thinning that leads to fractures, and boosts the formation of new bone.
The journal Nutrition reports that beer is also rich in phytoestrogens, plant versions of estrogens, which keep bones healthy. Those who had less than a pint per day, whom scientists classify as light beer drinkers, fared just as well as those in the moderate bracket, suggesting that even small amounts can boost bone health."
Beer is the world's oldest and most widely consumed alcoholic beverage and the third most popular drink overall after water and tea.
Multiple studies have also shown that aerobics, weight bearing, and resistance exercises can all maintain or increase bone density in postmenopausal women.
But before you get a year’s supply of beer, note that other foods can also help in bone strengthening.
Milk, yogurt, cheese, dark green vegetables are good to complement your diet with calcium. Calcium supplements are a good choice for the ladies that have no time for diet delicacies.
For all sisters out there see you at the bar! Cheers!
