Beer gets a bad rap, but it does have some legit health benefits, too. Ales are especially high in phenols, a variety of natural antioxidants that protect the heart. Pick a low-calorie, low-carb variety to maximize health benefits. Just remember to drink in moderation to keep calories (and intoxication) under control.
Do it Today: At the bar, choose a bottle that’s low in calories and high in phenols for a healthier drinking experience.
More into well drinks than hops? Ask the bartender for one of these healthier cocktails.
Think outside the tap—nonalcoholic drinks from fruit juice to tea to milk can help the body recover, build strength, or get over being sick.
