Forget after exercise energy drinks, those so called fast hydrating fluids, for goodness sake, forget water! Forget everything you were ever taught in regards to the consumption of liquids.

The best thing you can do to overcome that well earned, well desired, thrist….is down yourself a bottle of fresh beer.

Yes, beer. B-E-E-R.

A dedicated team of Spanish scientist from Granada University said drinking beer after strenuous physical activity can be beneficial for the body. Yes, I repeat. Drinking a beer after physical activity can be BENEFICIAL for the body, even more so than water. Yes, BETTER THAN WATER! H2o baby!

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.

If ever you needed a better excuse. If ever!

You can get it any old how…..

As a matter of fact. I’ve got it now…..
