Drinking beer after workout hydrates body 'better' than water

Washington, Aug 08 : Researchers have suggested that drinking beer after a workout rehydrates the body better than water.


Professor Manuel Garzon at Granada University in Spain also claimed the carbonation in beer helps to quench the thirst and that its carbohydrate content can help replace lost calories, the Washington Times reported.

The study involved a group of students who were asked to work out until their body temperature reached 104 degrees.

Later, half of the students were giving beer while the researchers gave water to the other half.

The results showed that hydration effect in those who drank beer was "slightly better" than those who had consumed water.

The results were announced at a press conference in Granada.
