Is Beer Better for Your Body Than Gatorade After a Hard Workout?

Are you still sticking to your New Years Resolution? If so congratulations!  Most people have given up at working out 3 days a week.  Since you are still hitting it hard  You’ll never guess what you should be drinking instead of Gatorade after exercising.  Science writer Christie Aschwaden thinks beer is better for you after a hard workout than Gatorade. Gatorade has Electrolytes which is simply salt, and we’re really not deficient in them at all,” she says. “But beer is mostly water, so it is hydrating, and the carbs in beer are actually helpful in recovery.”

She adds that the alcohol in beer can have a soothing effect after intense exercise, provided you practice some self-control. “One thing that’s often neglected after a hard workout is the need to relax,” says Aschwanden. “It’s important to send a signal to the body that it’s time to recover. The trick is to stop at just one.” See thats the hard part for me (LOL) Just One
