Post workout rehydration: which drink fares the best?
Description
Which drink should we reach for after a hard work-out? Exercising in a hot environment leads to dehydration, so we need to consume fluids in the post-exercise period in order to replenish the fluid lost through sweating. For optimal rehydration, is it necessary to consume a sports drink, or are other drinks as good? Dr Andy Blannin (Senior Lecturer in Exercise Metabolism) looks at this issue with Professor Alice Roberts (Professor of Public Engagement in Science at the University of Birmingham) on Britain's Favourite Foods: Are They Good For You? (21:00, Tuesday 14 April, BBC2).
