You might've heard by now that you're supposed to drink a glass of red wine a day. Welp, according to UC Davis professor of brewing sciences Charlie Bamforth, that's a teeth-staining load of hooey -- you should be drinking a glass of beer instead. The awesomely-titled scientist claims that the average bottle of suds is much more nutritious than a glass of wine, and he's got the facts to back it up. Cheers to your health.
According to Bamforth, beer contains significant amounts of "selenium, B vitamins, phosphorus, folate and niacin", in addition to having more protein (and carbs) than wine. Also, his research (i.e. drinking lots of brews, probably -- jealous yet?) has suggested that beer may contain prebiotics, chemicals that nurture the growth of good bacteria in your digestive system. See? Everyone gets healthier!
