BEER!

Beers that are commercially available were altered to add electrolytes while slightly reducing alcohol content, though the flavor was not affected at all. The modified brews were given to test subjects who had just finished exercising. The light beer was shown to retain best in the body, meaning it was hydrating most effectively.

BONUS PERK: Hydrating beer means less chance of a hangover the next day.

Well, if it has electrolytes...

But the question is, can I replace an entire planets worth of water with it?

Most beers have electrolytes in them. Salt is an electrolyte, and so is sugar. It is more of a gimmick to say that a drink has electrolytes or not. It could be possible though if there was a beer that contained actually out of the ordinary hydrating chemicals.

Man logic: drinks beer because its the social and "manly" thing to do > hates the taste.

But. Alcohol inhibits the hormone responsible for re-absorption of water in the kidneys. So even if its water content was absorbed into the blood stream faster, wouldn't it still dehydrate you overall?

...................................So they added ******* salt to it? Wonderful.

I'm going to go down to my local diner and pick up a few "electrolyte" packets next to the splenda, anyone want some?

This is what I don't understand about beer. And the only reason I'm stating this is because it said something about "retaining taste." Beer usually taste ****** . Yet, even people who think it taste ****** will call you a pussy if you drink "girly" drinks. I just need to know why people who don't enjoy the taste of beer still subject themselves to it, when they can have something that tastes like soda. Is it some kind of pride thing? And, yes, I do understand that many people do enjoy the regular taste of beer.

Beer is already more hydrating than Gatorade. It's also effective against osteoporosis, heart disease, dementia, and high blood pressure. It's an excellent source of fiber, and contains vitamins and minerals.

So you're saying.. that drinking the beer will help PREVENT the hangover?
This, I can get behind.
