Beer may be the new sports drink

  • A Canadian company is hoping that people begin using beer cans as water bottles. Reports suggest that Vampt's Lean Machine "recovery ale" is made with nutrients, protein and electrolytes. Moreover, the can only has 77 calories and 0.5 percent alcohol. 

    A study also revealed that nonalcoholic beer may be linked to a healthier immune system. "A properly formulated beer beverage is likely to do you more harm than you are likely to get from a sports drink," a sports nutritionist said. "In fact, it probably is likely to do you more good, because it's got a lot of these sort of natural compounds...that are actually good for your health."
