The thirst for knowledge has its rewards . "A new research made at the Granada University points that after a game of football or rugby, a beer is more efficient in rehydrating the body than water.
Alcohol may be linked to cancer and other diseases but the carbohydrates, salts and bubbles that are found in beer could make fluids' absorption much easier."
"Not to mention beer is a package of vitamins and minerals coming from barley, hops and yeast." The rehydration effect in the students who were given beer was "slightly better" than among those given only water." said lead researcher Professor Manuel Garzon, of Granada's medical faculty."The carbon dioxide in beer helps quench the thirst more quickly, while beer's carbohydrates replace calories lost during physical exertion.""
