India Pale Ales Provide The Most Benefit According to Cal Davis Study
Got milk? Heck, got beer may be better for you!
The Journal of Science and Agriculture has published a study that looked at 100 beers and concluded that brews can increase bone density.
The study comes from the University of California at Davis, which has a class in brewing beer. And the conclusion from Charles Bamforth and Troy Casey is that the silicon content that results from the various ingredients in beer and from the brewing processes produces stronger bones.
“Silicon impacts bone mineral density in humans, and supplementing silicon in the diets of osteoporitic women increased bone mineral density,” Bamforth and Casey wrote in the report.
“Well that’s why women’s breasts look bigger after you drink beer,” joked Jay Leno on The Tonight Show. “It’s the silicone!”
Ha, that’s worth a toast!
According to the survey, India Pale Ales have the highest silicon level, followed by other ales. Nonalcoholic beers, light lagers and wheat beers proved to have the least silicon.
Here’s cheers to this new survey!
