I must tell you that there are quite a few unexpected benefits of beer that you should consider because this beverage isn’t just “a crowd pleaser for all tastes and seasons”;

your favorite beer might be healthier than you think.

I must admit that it does have a high calorie content, ranging from 100 calories in light beers to even 220 calories per serving.

That’s why it’s best to drink it with moderation, so you’ll avoid that unwanted beer belly.

So, here are a few pretty amazing benefits of beer that will turn it into one of your favorite beverages:

1. It’s Rich in B Vitamins

One of the most unexpected health benefits of beer that will give you a good reason to drink it is the fact that it’s extremely rich in B vitamins.

A lot of varieties of beer, especially unfiltered beer, are high in B3, B6, B12 and folic acid (B9) and while B3 aids in cell repair, B6 eases PMS.

There is also a pretty famous Dutch study which found that “beer-drinking participants had 30% higher levels of vitamin B6 levels in their blood than their non-drinking counterparts, and twice as much as wine drinkers.” Pretty amazing, right?

2. It Keeps Your Kidneys Healthy

This was quite a big surprise for me too, but apparently beer will help your kidneys stay healthy.

A famous study which took place in Finland found that beer had a lot more benefits than any other alcoholic drink and that “each bottle of beer men drank daily lowered their risk of developing kidney stones by 40 percent.” Another explanation could be the fact that beer has a pretty high water content and this might have helped their kidneys work better.

Either way, in moderation, beer has indeed some amazing health benefits!
