New Clinical Research: Beer is Antioxidant and non fattening

Malaga, Spain: Yesterday experts explained about the beer benefits on cardiovascular risk, osteoporosis and obesity , as part of an educational campaign on the role of moderate consumption of this drink , which in turn , has a "very high" antioxidant capacity.

This was expressed by the Chairman of the Scientific Committee of the Spanish Society of Dietetics and Food Science ( SEDCA ), Jesús Román , and his co-author, Alejandro Sanz, from the Endocrinology Service and Nutrition at the Miguel Servet Hospital in Zaragoza, Spain.

The campaign was presented at the Press Association in Malaga, supported by the Spanish Society for the Study of Obesity ( Seedo ) and the Information Center for Beer and Health ( CICS )  and it is aimed to both, professionals and general public, who have distributed educational materials in the Endocrinology  Divisions of the  Spanish hospitals.

 They educate about the urban myths that exist around beer and, specifically , the myth of the  "beer belly"', by sharing  several studies and  recent clinical research conducted  in Spain that not only deny but "prove otherwise".

The main problem has been what people consume along with beer, they stated.

They explained that fermented beverages are part of the Mediterranean Diet  and despite its English origin, beer is 5,000 years old in Spain .

Beer has a very high water content and it is made up of nutrients and minerals, such as phosphorus and magnesium, as well as vitamin B. As a result, experts have found that there is now  solid scientific basis to recommend it to patients.

Despite the growing problems of obesity in our population, "postitive perception has grown tremendously”. They have clarified that a beer contains between 75 and 100 calories and in  the case of beer without alcohol, only about 40 calories .

However, Sanz has stressed the importance of moderate consumption of beer. Which he  defined  as one or two beers (that contain alcohol) a day for women; and two or three for men.

For people who are on  a dietary treatment they  recommended to calm their thirst with a non-caloric beverage such as water or tea , and to use non-alcoholic beers instead .
