Happy 2017! If you’re like one of the millions of people out there, you’ve probably come up with some resolutions that you’d like to stick to this year. Maybe you’re going to lose some weight or become more fit and active. Perhaps you want to simply become healthier and happier in the New Year and beyond. Guess what? You don’t have to worry about your love for Kräftig derailing your New Year’s health resolutions!
Here are 5 reasons why Kräftig should be a part of your health resolutions every day!
It Helps You Replenish After a Workout – The next time you finish your run or Zumba class, reach for a cold one! Studies have shown that a pint of beer, particularly lager, is more effective in rehydrating the body than the same amount of water. That’s because lager is a rich source of potassium, which assists with rehydration, and B vitamins, which are necessary for keeping your energy up and building new muscle tissue.
It Keeps Your Bones Strong – You read that right – drinking beer can help keep your bones strong and healthy! That’s because barley husks make beer rich in silica, a mineral that is necessary for producing strong connective tissues including our hair, skin, nails, and bone density. Drinking a pint of Kräftig every day can help prevent bone loss, stave off osteoporosis, and enhance the speed and quality of your body’s bone formation!
It Gives You Plenty of Fiber – Bet you wouldn’t have guessed that beer is also rich in fiber. Well, it is! Just one pint of beer contains anywhere between 10 and 30% of your recommended daily intake of soluble fiber. The fiber is broken down to form prebiotics, which help grow the number of healthy bacteria in your gut. A happy stomach is a healthy stomach, and Kräftig can definitely help it get happy!
It Can Fight Off Alzheimer’s – Studies have shown that drinking a small amount of alcohol every day can slow or even prevent age-related brain diseases such as Alzheimer’s. As an added bonus, beer has the benefit of being a more mentally stimulating drink. You are much more likely to become social with others when you enjoy a nice cool Kräftig, and that interaction is good for your brain and your spirits!
It Can Helps Keep Your Heart Strong – Enjoying one pint of Kräftig a day can help reduce your chance of stroke and heart and vascular diseases! In fact, studies have shown that light drinking can decrease your chances of getting a stroke by 20%.
While indulgences are healthy, remember that moderation is key! Too much beer can cancel out all of these great health benefits you would otherwise experience. On the other hand, don’t be too stringent with your workout plans and diet. Reward yourself for your hard work and progress. We recommend doing that with an ice-cold Kräftig!
