2. Wine or Beer
When it comes to sources of probiotics, beer and wine should definitely not be your number one source. However, fermented alcoholic beverages such as wine and beer actually do provide some benefits when they are consumed in moderation. Beer is made from barley grain. The vitamins that survive the fermentation process and filtering process to create the beer can help to decrease the formation of blood clots and also lead to better cholesterol levels.
Wine contains a good amount of antioxidants. Antioxidants are important for fighting off free radicals in the body. When free radicals are left unchecked they can cause many health issues in the gut and other areas of the body. While beer and wine are not often the best choices when it comes to your health, drinking a glass of alcohol every once in a while can be beneficial, so pour yourself a glass in the evening and relax.
