A study a few years back suggested that wheat beer can be a secret elixir in recovering from a marathon, a punishing exercise in pushing human physiology to keep moving for 26.2 miles.The study was conducted in Germany and initially reported in Science Daily and later reported and expanded up in various exercise and running websites including Active Time. Other studies have been conducted further verifying the results.
The key to beer in general and especially wheat beer has many different polyphenols. These are capable of capturing the dangerous free radicals that are produced during exercise that contribute to post run soreness. If Beer isn’t your thing then fruit also works. So pop a cold one and RUNBEST!
