New Findings: Beer Helps Bone Growth & Development

Researchers from the Department of Food Science and Technology at the University of California have completed studies on commercial beer production to determine a relationship between beer production and resulting silicon content concluding that beer is rich in dietary silicon. (details of this study are available in the February issue of Journal of the Science of Food and Agriculture, published by Wiley-Blackwell on behalf of the Society of Chemical Industry)

Charles Bamforth, leading author of the study reported that they have examined the wide range of beer styles for their silicon content and have studied the impact of raw materials along with the brewing process on the quantities of silicon.
 
Orthosilicic acid (OSA) is found as silicon in beer, which yeilds 50% bioavailability making beer a major contributor of silicon intake in the western diet which according to the National Institutes of Health may be important for the growth and development of bone and connective tissue. Based on these results, some studies suggests moderate beer consumption may help ‘osteoporosis’ a disease of the skeletal system which shows low bone mass and deterioration of bone tissue.
 
So drink and be happy in the thought that beer is good for you.
