Some folks like to finish off a workout with a nice cold beer, but the thought of that leaves some health nuts feeling guilty. But there’s a new trend of “wellness beers” also called “recovery beers” that are made for a post sweat sesh drink. So yes, even beer is getting better for you.
These brews are typically less potent than craft beer, staying around 5% ABV or less, and they’re made with minerals, sea salt, and electrolytes, which are all meant to help your body recover. Those electrolytes are also a key ingredient in Gatorade and help your body absorb nutrients and balance pH levels, so those recovery beers are basically like boozy Gatorade.
