Beer hydrates the body after exercise as much as water does, according to a study presented at Brussels’ “VI Symposium on Beer and Health”

Doctor Manuel Castillo from the University of Granada presented a study that demonstrates that the moderate consumption of beer after practicing sports is as effective as water for rehydration.

Castillo measured the reaction of both water and beer after intense physical exercise in a group of young males, and found drinking beer doesn’t interfere with the rehydration process that follows exercising.

Castillo also said that during the symposium, his team will present another study that shows there is no relationship between beer consumption, and the development of a “pot belly.”
