(science we like) - Study: Beer beats water for hydration

GRENADA, Spain, Nov. 2 (UPI) -- Researchers at Granada University in Spain said drinking beer after strenuous physical activity can be beneficial for the body.

The scientists said their study found beer can help dehydrated people retain liquid better than water alone, The Telegraph, a Biritsh newspaper, reported Friday.

Professor Manuel Garzon, who led the study, said the bubbles in beer can help quench thirst and the carbohydrates in the beverage can help make up for burned calories.

The study involved a group of students asked to perform strenuous activities at a temperature of about 104 degrees Fahrenheit. Half of the students were given a pint of beer after their exercise and half were given a pint of water. Garzon said the hydration affect on the beer drinkers was "slightly better" than the sober group.

Juan Antonio Corbalan, a cardiologist who has worked with Real Madrid football players and Spain's national basketball team, told The Telegraph he has long recommended beer to professional sportsmen after exhausting activities, as the drink is optimal for rehydrating the body.

i always thought alcohol caused dehydration and that's why ppl were trying to drink lots of water to avoid getting dehydrated and a hangover after they were partying and stuff.

I emailed that article to all my friends last Friday, just to let them know that rugby players have always been on the cutting edge of science.

You'll love the French Rugby team, especially Paris.*




*FYI - I'm assuming Falcon is gay porn and the French Ruggers do naked calendars; and the Parisians specifically have a pink fetish.

You don't have to be a rugby player to be on that cutting edge.

It would be nice if Griffin bought the beer considering she brought it up! After all the Sox won the World Serious last weekend and the Pats beat the Colts yesterday. Seems like she would want to celebrate like she is from Boston!

Re: (science we like) - Study: Beer beats water for hydration

This article simply says the bubbles "quench" the thirst and the carbs help make up for the burned calories. It says NOTHING about actually hydrating the body. Completely misleading.
