I’ve been known to imbibe in a beer or two on occasion. In fact, get me near a football or baseball game, and I’m almost guaranteed to have one. (It just seems wrong without it—all things in moderation, right?) So that’s why this recent nutrition research put a smile on my face: Most beers are good sources of silicon, an important component of bone health and bone density. My hubby’s fave type of beer, IPA, had the most silicon of the 100 commercial beers tasted, and light beers had the least amount of silicon tested, but still contained a notable amount. My personal fave type of beer, stout, wasn’t on the list, but I’ll assume that it’s a good source, too. Unfortunately, beer still has calories though and can have some negative health consequences, so moderation, moderation, moderation!
