Vegans: Need a Source Of B12? Have a Daily Beer!

0

I was talking to my beer geek friend from Washington a few days ago about beer and its impact on health, and here's a little tidbit she passed onto me about a guy named Bert Grant who ran a brewery who was later put out of business by the ATF (once again, the NWO rears its ugly head) for printing nutritional information on one of his beers, which stated the following: 

"12-oz. bottle of Grant's Scottish Ale contains no fat (like all beer) or
cholesterol, yet would contribute 170 percent of the U.S. Recommended 
Daily Allowance (RDA) of Vitamin B12, 62.5 percent RDA of folacin, 14.6 
percent of niacin, 13.9 percent of Vitamin B6, as well as significant 
amounts of protein, riboflavin, carbohydrates, and potassium."

Of course, different beers have different nutritional profiles, however from this we can see that beer is an incredible source of vitamin B12 which is supposedly only found in animal foods. Of course, to maximize this benefit, choose high quality/microbrew beers which are brewed with better quality ingredients and just taste better. 

This also goes for everyone: given the dense nutritional profile of quality beer, when added to the heart-healthy benefits of alcohol, beer might just be the healthiest beverage known to man (in moderation, of course). 

Cheers!
