According to the head of Pediatrics Doctor Peset Hospital of Valencia, Pilar Codoñer, “Consumption of non-alcoholic beer improves the antioxidant capacity of breast milk, to the point that maternal serum has a 30 percent higher antioxidant capacity”.
The study was conducted in 2011 with 80 nursing mothers, half of which followed a normal diet (control group), while the other half were supplemented their diet with two daily non-alcoholic beer (bottles) for 30 days (study group). “
They also discussed “the antioxidant capacity of breast milk at three different times of breastfeeding, according to their developmental stage (beginning or colostral milk, at 15 days or milk per month of transactional and early lactation, when milk called mature) “.
Codoñer explained that: “We have seen a decrease in antioxidant activity as human milk matures, however, nursing mothers who had supplemented their diet with non-alcoholic beer showed a smaller decline and slower.”
