Possible Health Benefits of Drinking Beer

2. Some of the researchers found that beer lowered the risk of kidney stones.

3. Made from barley, beer contains beta-glucans, a type of soluble fiber credited with lowering cholesterol levels. A 12 oz bottle of bear contains 1.3 grams of fiber. 

4. 12 oz beer supplies 3 percent of the daily recommendation of vitamin B12. Vitamin B12 plays a key role in brain and nervous system functioning, as well as blood formation

5. It’s also a source of folate, niacin, riboflavin, pantothenic acid and vitamin B6.
