The melatonin contained in beer can provide health benefits, due to its antioxidant, anti‐inflammatory and immunomodulatory properties

Publication Date Sep 15, 2022

Abstract

Beer is a drink that is part of the diet of many peoples, it is a fermented beverage with a low alcohol content originating from cereal fermentation (barley or wheat) and contains melatonin. Melatonin (N-acetyl-5-methoxytryptamine) is a molecule with a wide range of antioxidant, oncostatic, immunomodulatory, and cytoprotective properties. The aim of this work was to review the data supporting the idea that moderate consumption of beer, because of its melatonin content, is particularly useful in the diets of healthy subjects and in other physiological situations (pregnancy, menopause, old age, …), through food products as functional tools. Methods: Data source: a) The MEDLINE / PubMed search was conducted from 1975 to April 2022, and b) Our own experience and published studies on melatonin, the immune system, and beer. In this perspective, we provide a background on the mechanisms of melatonin generation in beer, its concentrations, and its possible effects on health. Conclusions: Melatonin contained in beer, as part of the diet of healthy individuals and in some special physiological situations, could act as a protective factor and improve the quality of life of those who drink it in moderation.
