Which Drink is Best for Hydration? Hint: Not Water
September 26, 2019 4:00PM CDT
When you want to quench your thirst, don’t just grab a glass of water; you may want to grab a glass of milk as well!
According to a new study, milk will hydrate you better than water.
Water is still good, but milk is even better. Milk has sugar, sodium, fat, and protein, which cause milk to stay in your stomach longer, leaving you hydrated longer.
However, if you are lactose intolerant and can’t do milk, grab a bottle of water with electrolytes for better hydration.
When I was a kid, I played really hard outside. I remember coming back to the house and chugging milk from the carton… just to run back out and continue playing again. I guess it all makes sense now, but how did I not puke all the time from all that milk??
