Real ale is good for you (Part 1)

The Five Lamps public house in Derby is currently advocating the benefits our traditional and local fare can have on our visiting patrons.

As any guest to our traditional pub can tell you, we serve good a good pint, well that and a host of other drinks any of our customers would ever ask us to pour. However, as any real ale or cask ale connoisseur could tell you, our range of high quality, expertly crafted and utterly enjoyable beers have been sourced far and wide from some of the best known breweries the UK has to offer.

Apart from all featuring as intrinsic to any CAMRA following beer drinker, the extensive range of real ales on offer at the Five Lamps pub in Derby are also renowned for the qualities they possess, the subtle aromas that permeate the nose, along with a thirst quenching taste that is utterly phenomenal, or so we think anyway. Great, so we are all on the same page, but did you also know that there are also a number of health benefits linked to good old fashioned real ales?

No? Well there are, as clinical studies have shown that beer is one of the single and best sources of dietary silicon, which also contains high levels of calcium, which is necessary for strong teeth, hair, nails and bones! Which for the older patrons is certainly good news, as it has been shown that regular drinkers of real ales tend to have a higher bone density than their non-beer drinking counterparts. Similarly, it is believed that people who drink real ales regularly are also up to 50% less likely to develop Rheumatoid arthritis, with beer being believed to reduce the natural inflammation.

Beer or real ale is also believed to be good for your heart as it serves to raise the levels of ‘good’ HDL cholesterol and has been linked to curbing cardiovascular diseases owing to its ability to lower blood pressure and prevent atherosclerosis, due to increasing the dilation of blood vessels. In addition, it also a well-known fact that beers or real ales contain a plentiful supply of vitamins and minerals.

On that note and until next time, now you know that real ale is medically proven to do you good, why not call in and see what the Five Lamps in Derby can prescribe you today?
