New Research: Beer for recovery

Postby bigfriendlyvegan » Thu Feb 21, 2013 4:08 pm

From The Washington Times:
Scientists suggest beer after a workout

Researchers at Granada University in Spain have found that beer can help the body rehydrate better after a workout than water or Gatorade.

Professor Manuel Garzon also claimed the carbonation in beer helps to quench the thirst and that its carbohydrate content can help replace lost calories, The Telegraph reports.

The study involved a group of students who were asked to work out until their body temperature reached 104 degrees. Researchers then gave beer to half of the students and water to the other half.

Mr. Garzon announced the results at a press conference in Granada, saying the hydration effect in those who drank beer was “slightly better,” The Telegraph reports.

A cardiologist with the Real Madrid football team, Dr. Juan Antonio Corbalan, told the paper he long has recommended barley drinks to professional sportsmen after exhausting activities.

What any politician dreams of during their election campaign - a beer-led recovery :P

Faster rehydration would be followed by faster dehydration...

Students performed better after drinking beer. Who'd have thought?
This was my type of research at university but it was never published.

http://www.upi.com/Health_News/2007/11/02/Study-Beer-beats-water-for-hydration/UPI-75631194005695/

But hey you can't blame them if they feel the need to repeat the research every year! :lol: :wink: :lol:

I always referred to beer as protein drinks anyway, back in my racing days. :wink: :lol:

Not when it's 39C and you still have to climb 7kms up a mountainside :(

I found that out. Even just the one pint - no good for the legs.

Each to their own. A mid ride beer or two helped me set a PB (308km,1100m day) in high 30's weather. Fastest hour of the day was last on bike.
I quite regularly stop at a pub mid way through centuries to 'carb up'.

Beer is my reward (I reward myself lots :mrgreen: ). I've only ever had a mid-ride beer once - during a social ride that included lunch. Can't say it helped or hindered! Certainly not my refreshment of choice during a ride though - not that there's anything wrong with that

Weight Weenies drink Lite. :P

From my era, it was understood- 3B's Belgium/Bike Riders/Beer. Simple; Stella Artois. :D
(it was a short ride to get back from the Brewery to Ghent.)
