The study, developed by the University of Valencia and Hospital Doctor Peset, a product as rich in antioxidants as non-alcoholic beer can modify the antioxidant capacity of breast milk. In the research, 80 healthy women with babies born with the appropriate weight were analyzed. Half of the participating women were given 660 ml. daily non-alcoholic beer in your diet. The result revealed a 30 percent increase in antioxidant capacity of breast milk. What does that mean? Well, antioxidants reduce the risk of children suffering from cardiovascular diseases.

The mother can also benefit from this substance through the consumption of some fruits such as mango, pineapple and kiwi, or vegetables like broccoli, carrots and cauliflower. Olive oil, as well as nuts, are also rich in antioxidants.

- Light beer provides fewer calories to the body than a conventional beer, but he is not feeling alcohol. Depending on the brand, it can have 2.4 to 3.5 alcohol in its composition.
