Time to trade in that Gatorade for a Heineken. Amazingly, researchers have found that beer actually hydrates the body better than water after a tough workout. Will someone please award the Nobel Prize to these courageous scientists immediately?
As reported in the current issue of Science magazine, researchers at Granada University in Spain tested 25 students who ran on a treadmill at a high temperature until they were exhausted. After the workout, half the subjects drank water while the other half were given two pints of lager.
Lo and behold, the researchers found that the beer drinkers had “slightly better” hydration, motor skills and ability to concentrate. The scientists speculate that the sugar, salt and bubbles found in beer help the body to absorb fluids. Beer’s carbohydrates also replenish the calories you’ve burned off.
So crack open a cold one and toast this wonderful piece of news
