La percepción de la sed durante la deshidratación por ejercicio es la misma en un ambiente húmedo y en un ambiente seco
La sed ha sido un mecanismo para controlar hidratación muy criticado a lo largo del tiempo, confiar la homeostasis del cuerpo durante el ejercicio a un mecanismo subjetivo como la sed es un tema controversial. Este estudio ...
Post-exercise rehydration with beer impairs fluid retention, reaction time, and balance
Beer is promoted by the popular media as a good choice for rehydration, but there is limited support for the claim. To assess the effect of beer alcohol on rehydration and motor control, 11 young (24.4 ± 3.7 y.o.) males ...
