Background and objectives: Beer consumed in moderation (330 mL/day for women and 660 mL/day for men, up to 5% alcohol) may have certain beneﬁts for the human body, due to natural ingredients, but especially due to important sources of protein, ﬁber and antioxidants. According to specialized studies, beer consumed in moderation can have beneﬁcial effects on the body.
Materials and methods: The study was conducted on 50 subjects selected based on characteristics such as age, height, weight and not after exercising or doing physical activities. All research subjects beneﬁted from two evaluations (initial and ﬁnal), consisting of: physical examination, EKG examination, body hydration analysis, adipose tissue analysis, muscle tissue analysis, heart rate analysis and speed motor quality. These analyses were performed daily for a period of seven days, both for the initial and the ﬁnal evaluation (a total of 14 days of assessments).
Results: Between the two evaluations, subjects consumed 660 mL of beer with up to 5% alcohol daily (WHO recommended dose) for 30 days. The results obtained (at the initial and ﬁnal evaluation) were inventoried and statistically processed using statistical programs. It was found that moderate beer consumption (660 mL of beer with up to 5% alcohol) daily for a period of 30 days can lead to an increase in body hydration, a decrease in adipose tissue as well as an increase in muscle mass. In addition, a decrease in heart rate was observed after physical activity (short running on 100 m), which leads us to a better adaptation of the body after intense physical effort.
Discussion and conclusion: Moderate beer consumption (660 mL/day for men, up to 5% alcohol, WHO recommended dose) can have beneﬁcial effects on body hydration, adipose and muscle tissue, and better adaptation of the body after intense physical effort.
