Beer

Beer for your bones

The mineral silicon is found in areas of active growth inside bones and is involved in growth of bone crystals and the calcification of bone. Silicon is present in beer in the form of orthosilicic acid (OSA). The silicon from OSA is 50 per cent bioavailable so moderate beer consumption (1-2 standard drinks daily) could be good for your bones leading researchers to study commercial beers to establish the relationship brewing methods and silicon content. They found that pale barley malts retain more silicon as they are exposed to less heat than the darker malts. Hops showed very high silicon levels but most beers use more grain than hops. Wheat contains less silicon than barley. Samples of 100 commercial beers found a silicon range of 6.4 to 56.5 mg/l. The highly hopped beers with high levels of malted barley are best for silicon; that’s the beer bones of it.Meanwhile if you visit Meijer Ad that contains mostly likewise discounts with Winn Dixie Ad you surely have a range like ALDI Ad.
