Study concludes that moderate amounts of beer does not affect the hydration after exercise

A study presented on Tuesday (20) in Brussels, Belgium, shows that moderate consumption of beer after exercise is as effective as water for hydration, according to medical experts.

This is one of the conclusions presented in the "VI European Symposium on Beer and Health", attended by experts in medicine, nutrition and feeding of the European Union.

The researcher Manuel Castillo, University of Granada, presented the results of a study that consisted of measuring the body's reaction to the ingestion of water or beer after the performance of intense physical exertion. "We conducted the study to prove the custom of drinking beer after exercise was recommended," said Castillo.

The conclusion was that a moderate amount of beer "does not affect the hydration after exercise." Beer would be "the same as drinking water," so it is recommended the consumption of the brew to all people who have no contraindications.

"We found no negative effect could be attributed to the intake of beer compared with the ingestion of water," said Castillo, who also said during the conference will be presented another study that rules out that there is "no relationship" between the consumption of drink and the tendency to develop "beer belly".

The doctor Ramón Estruch, Hospital Clinic of Barcelona, ​​said the results of these studies show that moderate consumption of beer "helps in preventing cardiovascular events, thanks to the antioxidant and anti-inflammation of the arteries."

It also provides protection against cardiovascular risk factors such as diabetes, improve blood pressure, regulate cholesterol and prevents atherosclerosis, according to research.

Estruch said research is currently underway to determine whether the benefits of beer with alcohol are greater than the beer "without", although there are indications that the former has more positive effects.

Anyway, Estruch stressed the importance of "consuming beer in a pattern of healthy eating, preferably the Mediterranean diet."

Aguilar Maria Teresa Fernandez, a researcher at the Valencia Health Agency, reported on the beneficial effects of alcohol-free beer for breastfeeding mothers. She cited a study that showed that children breastfed by mothers who consumed two beers without alcohol during lactation are less likely to suffer from diseases like cancer and arteriosclerosis due to the transmission components of the antioxidant beverage.

"The results surprised us," said Maria Fernandez, adding that non-alcoholic beer would be recommended that other chemical-based soft drinks.
