Carmenta Wellness presents Vertiga, craft brewery

12 May 2021

The Vertiga brewery was born from the encounter of long-time professionals in the world of craft beer with the intention of drawing on these experiences in a new approach to the market. Vertiga's mission is simple: to create sophisticated beers that are at the same time incredibly straightforward to drink and affordable for anyone approaching the world of craft beer. Our vision is to make beers that turn happy moments into happy memories. Because every time you choose to buy craft beer, you make a choice. You choose to support a small producer. You choose to support a supply chain. You choose to give a face to a product. And inside the bottle you will find not only beer but time, passion, selected ingredients and care in production.

When toasting (with craft beer) is good for you

Beer consumption is rarely associated with physical wellbeing, but rather with conviviality and mood, but recent university studies have disproved the negative effect of beer on health. Moderate, daily consumption of beer has many positive effects on the body. Beer is one of the spirits with the lowest alcohol content, ranging from 3 to 9% by volume, and its composition is essentially water and dry extract rich in nutrients. Beer is rich in positive sugars, tannins, maltodextrins, vitamins, lipids, proteins, salts and acids. Hops, which perform the dual function of preservative and flavouring in beer, are rich in flavonoids and essential oils. The combined action of these elements helps to strengthen bones, block inflammation, protect the heart, control cholesterol levels and improve circulation and anaemia. 


The high diuretic power of beer also has a detoxifying effect on the body and prevents the formation of kidney stones.

Malt also plays an important role in the positive work on the body. As it is produced from barley, which is rich in soluble fibres, beer maintains its high fibre content and provides around 10 % of our daily fibre requirement, which is essential for proper bowel function, satiety and blood sugar regulation. 

The anti-ageing effect of this wonderful product should also not be underestimated. A pint of good beer is in fact a source of natural antioxidants, the natural enemy of free radicals that promote ageing.


Contrary to popular belief, beer is also a good ally in a low-calorie diet. 100 ml of beer contain between 30 and 60 calories.

But since ancient times, beer has also been used for the care and well-being of the body. It keeps teeth clean and has been used for centuries as a remedy against dandruff and dry, swollen skin. 


Finally, for sportsmen and women and lovers of saunas and Turkish baths, it is essential to take cold beer as a recovery after training or treatment. As rugby players teach us, beer not only cements the unity of team and opponents in post-match celebrations, but the sugars are indispensable in supplying the body with glucose and new energy, helping to build muscle mass. 



In the old Nordic tradition, the culture of drinking beer during a wellness cycle has two main purposes: rehydration and maltose supply.

A wellness cycle has as a contraindication the significant loss of liquids due to sweating; beer, the main component of which is water, helps to rehydrate the body, and as it is a malt-based product, it supplements the body with maltose, which is a natural energizer.

In saunas, the alcohol is eliminated through sweating, retaining the maltose.



Compared to other beverages, beer, due to its high water content, helps to recover more quickly from dehydration. An old slogan of the Italian brewers' association reads 'He who drinks beer lives a hundred years' and in the light of this research we can only agree.
