Good to the Bones!

Drink a Beer to Bone Health

Twelve million men have bones that are getting thinner and more brittle each day. Here’s an irresistible way to keep your bones safe, strong, and young.

The bone-saving secret in beer is silicon, a chemical that stimulates collagen production. What’s collagen? It’s a protein that makes your bones denser and your joints more flexible. Beers with the most hops and malted barley are the richest in silicon. Bananas and brown rice also are silicon-packed. Homebrewers – take note.
