Drinking beer might help you have a healthier gut, according to new research.

Good news for beer lovers! Moderate consumption of beer can increase the diversity of people’s gut bacteria, according to a recent study published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry.

The researchers conducted the study over a four-week period, participants were given 325 ml of beer (non-alcoholic or alcoholic) every day. Their gut microbiota was examined both before and after the study.

The team found positive impact of beer consumption on the participants’ intestinal health. Study authors also observed that moderate consumption of beer didn't impact participants’ body weight, fat mass or even their heart health and metabolism.
