World's First Probiotic Beer Supports Gut Health And Boosts Immunity

What are probiotics. How does probiotic beer helps in building immunity.

Those who love to chug beer can only ever see the golden halo around a mug of goodness but now, new research supports them too! A new probiotic beer, that’s been created by scientists in Singapore, claims to actually improve your gut health. Cheers!

What are probiotics?

Probiotics are the good bacteria housed in your intestines that ensure that your tummy feels good at all times. These good bacteria try and make sure that harmful bacteria do not make your gut their home, so there is constant competition for space between the good and the bad bacteria. According to the International Scientific Association for Probiotics and Prebiotics, one should have “…a minimum of 1 billion probiotics per serving for the maximum health benefits. Foods like yoghurt, miso soup, sauerkraut, pickles, and other fermented edibles have probiotics”.  

What is the new beer all about?

Associate Professors Liu Shao Quan and Chan Mei Zhi Alcine from the Food, Science, and Technology Programme at the National University of Singapore have been working on creating the perfect beer for the last 9 months, and their baby is one healthy chug; one that tastes good, and also has probiotics, which eggs your gut on to stay fit. While in the past it was difficult to create a probiotic beer given that hops (one of beer’s key ingredients) prevent probiotics from growing, the latest experiment goes beyond this and creates a solution to the problem. Something known as ‘lactic acid bacterium’ is found in this beer, and that works as a probiotic. According to the Science Daily website, “By propagating the probiotic and yeast in pure cultures, and modifying conventional brewing and fermentation processes, Miss Chan managed to increase and maintain the live counts of the strain of probiotic”. The beer, which is likely to have an alcohol content of 3.5 per cent, is sour and tart, but reportedly, tastes really good. The team has filed a patent for its product, but it is likely to be a while before it makes its way to supermarket shelves.

Mental Wellbeing

Today, what we all need most is peace of mind, and mind you, it doesn’t come easy. To find tranquility, you must let go, and to learn to do that, you must embark on a journey for your own sake. We know that being healthy means so much more than just a healthy body. It means a healthy mind – a state of complete mental wellbeing. We welcome personal experiences, expert views, meditation techniques, and other holistic ways of achieving mindfulness.

Nutrition

The human body is perfectly designed by nature, and how we fuel it is important. In order to climb the Everest, backpack around the globe, get that promotion, break the world record for baking the largest apple pie, or anything else that you want to do in life – it is important that you and your body are on the same page. And surprisingly enough, of all aspects of health, nutrition is the most ignored or misinterpreted. No more fad diets, ‘magical detoxes’, or weight-loss powders. Nutrition is simple science...and lots of taste. Submissions within this category will include articles on health through foods, recipes, juices and smoothies, and natural and sustainable ways to achieve weight goals.

Fitness

We walk, run, swim, cycle, dance, workout – all to stay fit. Even though the end goals may be different for everyone, fitness, at the end of the day, means something that promises a healthy, fulfilling life. It means training your body to do better each day in whatever ways you want it to. Submit within this category if your article is to do with any form of physical fitness like yoga, running, muscle building, a success story, or any aspect of physical health.

Organic Beauty

Most of what you put on your skin is absorbed right into the bloodstream (Need proof? Think nicotine patches, or birth control patches). This is why a lot of the world is going back to their roots. Think organic. Think of all gifts of nature you could use, that could enrich your body, without all the chemicals and preservatives. Organic beauty is taking a stand for yourself – it is a lifestyle. If you have written about hair, skin, natural remedies, ayurveda, or alternate therapies, this is where you need to be.

Love

Love for a friend, family member, or lover – all such profound, complex emotions and connections. Oh love, love, love! It has the power to heal the soul, make a saint out of a criminal, and basically, just bring a smile to your face even on the most dismal of days. There are no rules, no laws, no policies, and absolutely no one manual when it comes to relationships. But oh, wouldn’t we all like a little help once in a while? Our broad categories include relationships, friendship, dating, sex, parenting, and other aspects of love.
