Few things divide the world in such an extraordinary way as the struggle between wine and beer. Perhaps one of the biggest dilemmas we face is when we have to decide between these two drinks.
Those afternoons with friends, or when you get home after a long day of work… What am I in the mood for? Should I let myself be seduced by the cold and bitter taste of beer or by an enigmatic and fruity sip of wine. Beer is one of the best rehydrators, and not only because after a hot summer day, a sip of cold beer tastes like glory, but because when it comes to hydrating the body, it is even better to drink beer than industrial juice, since beer preserves proteins from the fermented cereal.
Beer is rich in vitamins B1, B3, and B6, folic acid, magnesium, and potassium. As you can see, we have nothing against beer, but we are a wine startup, so now we must praise our drink of gods.
In the previous article we told you about the many benefits of wine. Fermented grapes have positive effects on the human body that are very different from those of beer. Wine contains resveratrol, a natural antioxidant that allows the body to generate a greater defense against cancers and neurological diseases, and at the same time prevents cardiovascular diseases. Grapes provide group B vitamins, but especially C and K.
There are multiple benefits of both drinks, as long as you drink them in moderation, but… What makes you fatter, wine or beer? If you’re asking this question because you want to get in shape for summer, we’re sorry to inform you that it’s a little late for that…
The good news is that neither option is very high in calories. In fact, they are quite similar. 100 ml of beer is around 50 calories. In the case of wine, it’s 70 calories. But, if you are a beer fan, it might be difficult to drink only 100 ml.
Although wine contains more calories, beer is usually more fattening.
Why? Because we drink more.
Which of the two is better?
A glass of wine a day helps rejuvenate the body, reduces heart disease, high blood pressure and diabetes.
Beer is often absent from reports praising the health benefits of beverages like wine, athough it also contains polyphenols, offering modest benefits, more akin to those of white wine.
Therefore, wine outdoes beer in terms of health benefits (and it’s not just us saying so).
So, let’s go drink some wine!
Always in moderation and responsibly, of course!
