Lager After Lifting? Post-Workout Beer Released in Canada

Lager After Lifting? Post-Workout Beer Released in Canada

Energy Drink Company Vampt releases a light beer called Lean Machine designed to help you re-fuel after a workout

Drink this after a workout and you'll feel re-hydrated, and a little buzzed.

Going to the gym? Don’t forget your can of beer! Canadian-based energy drink company Vampt has launched an all-new drink called Lean Machine that’s actually super-beer — a light lager infused with protein, vitamin C and zinc, amongst other things that are designed to help you recover after a tough work-out. An alcoholic energy drink is nothing new (think Four Loko), but a beer specifically designed for post-workout consumption is.

The website for Vampt claims, “whether you have just finished a game of ice hockey with your friends or just landed after an 18,000 foot free fall, Lean Machine replenishes your natural fluids lost during your adrenaline-filled daily pursuit of happiness.”

The beer itself is only 77 calories, so at least it’s guilt-free and according to National Public Radio, the concept is not as crazy as it sounds,.

Sports nutritionist Ben Desbrow told NPR that beer may actually be able to replenish your fluids because beer is already full of carbs and electrolytes — ingredients that are commonly found in beverages like Gatorade, and if formulated correctly, the product could actually help keep your body hydrated and energized.

The beverage is expected to hit stores in Canada this spring.


Lululemon Launches Its Newest Product — You Won't Believe What It Is

Cult fitness brand Lululemon has launched a new product, but it's not a pair of ultracomfy yoga pants. Instead, the fitness-centered company is launching its own craft beer, dubbed the Curiosity Lager. Lululemon has partnered with Stanley Park Brewing to create the beverage for the SeaWheeze Half Marathon and Sunset Festival, a popular race in Lululemon's hometown of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

The beer comes in a 500-milliliter can and has 4.6 percent alcohol, and with only 88,000 cans being released solely in Canada, not all Lululemon fans will be lucky enough to snatch up this new drink. Curiosity Lager is described as a "crisp, bold session lager" with a "citrus hop nose."

"Just because you're a yogi, doesn't mean you won't have an occasion for beer, and we're certainly interested in talking to that crowd," said Doug Devlin, director of marketing for Stanley Park Brewing. "I think Lululemon, by extension, is interested in talking to a more male beer-drinking crowd. It's a nice way for each of us to take what it is we do to a new consumer."

While we can't predict if more men will be into yoga just for the beer, the pairing between exercise and alcohol is a fast-growing trend. After all, once you master the Handstand Scorpion pose, why not have a celebratory beer for your efforts? In fact, many studios host postclass wine parties and some races even offer wine-lovers special tastings. Research has also shown that having one drink won't affect your post-workout achievements, but like with all vices, three or more drinks can negatively impact your hard work at the gym.

Curiosity Lager will be available on Aug. 15, but until then, see what other Lululemon fans are saying about the craft beer:

This will either go extremely well for the company or be the McPizza on the lululemon name #lululemon #curiositybeer pic.twitter.com/3Xu28RZw3a

I just don't understand this lululemon beer

— erika cionci (@erikacioncii) July 23, 2015

#lululemon coming out with their own beer. I'm assuming it has hints of pumpkin spice latte, with a finish of lighting a $100 bill on fire.

What is Potassium?

Potassium is categorized as an electrolyte. Electrolytes are minerals that have an electric charge and help with your body's fluid balance, movement of nutrition and waste in and out of cells, maintenance of your body's proper pH levels and optimal function of the nerves, heart, brain and muscles. Potassium is just one of these important electrolytes — the others are calcium, sodium, chloride, phosphate and magnesium.

Potassium is found in many foods, according to the National Institutes of Health, including bananas, orange juice, spinach, lentils, yogurt and meats. The average adult needs between 2,600 and 3,400 milligrams per day.

Alcohol, such as rum, vodka and whiskey, contains just 1 milligram of potassium — not enough to make a notable impact on your daily intake. The amount of potassium in beer is modest, with 96 milligrams in one average 12-ounce can. Compare this to the 1,101 milligrams in a ½ cup serving of dried apricots, 644 milligrams in 1 cup of acorn squash and 496 milligrams in 1 cup of orange juice.

8 Non-Alcoholic Beers You'll Actually Enjoy Drinking

Non-alcoholic beers used to be celebrated only by under-agers whom, upon finding a trove of "near beer" and had not yet wised up, would chug can after can in hopes of catching some glimmer of a buzz. To the rest of (legal) beer drinkers, NA big was largely a big NO.

But then, as a byproduct of the craft beer boom, actually delicious non-alcoholic beers started to emerge from craft (and eventually) big-time breweries.

These new-school NA beers deliver on flavor, but are free of the weighty ABV of beer with booze. (Worth noting: Not all "non-alcoholic" beers are actually free of alcohol. Some contain up to 0.5 percent ABV, the legal limit to label a beverage non-alcoholic.)

And the other great thing is that where once non-alcoholic beers were limited to largely one style&mdasha nod to light lager&mdashnow there are a wide variety of styles to choose from. Those styles include oatmeal stouts, ambers, and even hazy IPAs. It seems like overnight, the market was flooded with "hey-I'd-drink-that" options.

So, yes, right now is great time to drink NA beer&mdashwhether because you're sober curious, cutting back on calories, trying to sleep better, or just interested in what these things taste like.

Here's and eight-pack of great non-alcoholic beers to start you off on your NA journey. Why not a six-pack? Well, honestly, there are just too many great ones to try.

Can You Drink Alcohol After Getting the COVID-19 Vaccine? Here’s What Doctors Recommend

If you&aposre due to get your COVID-19 shot soon, you might have lots of questions about what you should and shouldn&apost do before and after the vaccine—such as whether it&aposs safe to celebrate finally receiving your shot with a few drinks. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has released guidelines for people who&aposve been newly vaccinated, but while they recommend avoiding OTC pain meds (like ibuprofen and Tylenol) before the vaccine𠅊nd talking to your doctor about taking the meds to relieve any discomfort after the vaccine)—there&aposs no mention of alcohol.

In the UK, experts recently advised people to avoid drinking alcohol in the days leading up to and after receiving the COVID-19 vaccine. "You need to have your immune system working tip-top to have a good response to the vaccine, so if you&aposre drinking the night before, or shortly afterwards, that&aposs not going to help," Sheena Cruickshank, PhD, an immunologist at the University of Manchester, told UK Metro.

And a Russian health official went a lot further last month, telling people who received the country&aposs Sputnik V vaccine that they should abstain from alcohol for two months. However, the developer of the Sputnik V vaccine, Alexander Gintsburg, PhD, later said this advice is far too extreme. Tweeting from the official Sputnik V account, Gintsburg advised refraining from alcohol for three days after each injection. Gintsburg added that this guidance applies to all vaccines.

In the US, there&aposs no official government recommendation on drinking alcohol before or after any of the three COVID-19 vaccines. But research on the Moderna, Pfizer-BioNTech and Johnson & Johnson vaccines didn&apost ask trial participants to avoid alcohol, and there&aposs no mention of people having issues after drinking in the trial results. Nor do the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) vaccination guidance for the Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines make any reference to alcohol.

However, while there&aposs no evidence that drinking alcohol affects the efficacy of the COVID-19 vaccine or causes any unwanted health effects, the doctors we spoke to advise against drinking alcohol immediately after receiving the shot.

"Vaccine side effects include muscle aches and pains and feeling under the weather. Compounding that with the side effects of alcohol runs the risk of making you feel worse," Tania Elliott, MD, clinical instructor of medicine at NYU Langone Health, tells Health.

Jagadeesh Reddy, MD, infectious disease specialist with Providence Mission Hospital in Orange County, California, agrees. "Though there is no data on this, it is advisable to abstain or reduce alcohol intake for the first 48-72 hours after vaccination as this is the usual period one might expect common and usually mild after effects of vaccination, like fatigue, muscle aches, injection site pain, etc," Dr. Reddy tells Health.

Another issue is that people who drink alcohol after getting the shot might blame their hangover symptoms on the vaccine, adds infectious disease expert Amesh A. Adalja, M.D., senior scholar at the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security. If they&aposve signed up for the CDC&aposs V-Safe After Vaccination Health Checker, they might report those hangover symptoms as side effects, and even tell other people about them—which could put people off getting the vaccine, Dr. Adalja tells Health.

Instead of knocking back the booze post-vaccine, give your body time to recover. "Focus on rest and hydration," Dr. Elliott says. You can always celebrate with your favorite cocktail a few days later. Just remember to stick to the CDC&aposs recommended daily guidelines—two drinks for men and one for women. Although casual or moderate alcohol consumption won&apost impact your response to the COVID-19 vaccine, excessive alcohol consumption is bad for a number of other health reasons.

The information in this story is accurate as of press time. However, as the situation surrounding COVID-19 continues to evolve, it&aposs possible that some data have changed since publication. While Health is trying to keep our stories as up-to-date as possible, we also encourage readers to stay informed on news and recommendations for their own communities by using the CDCWHO, and their local public health department as resources.

Carbohydrate Intake Calculator

WHAT DO CARBOHYDRATES DO?

There are three macronutrients, or macros, that make up your food: carbohydrates, protein, and fats. Carbohydrates are the body’s preferred energy source. They fuel your workouts, and provide ample energy to be used throughout the day for movement and brain function.

Carbs perform many other functions in the body as well. For example, they boost the hunger-suppressing hormone leptin, which is the idea behind carb refeeding" during a low-carb diet.[1]

Carbohydrates also help you sleep, which itself controls your levels of hunger and the catabolic stress hormone cortisol.[2,3] In case you needed one more reason to embrace carbs, know that many high-carb, unprocessed foods—think fruits, starchy vegetables, and tubers like sweet potatoes—are also chock-full of micronutrients like vitamins, minerals, and fiber.

BUT I THOUGHT CARBS WERE BAD FOR YOU!

If carbs are so beneficial, why do people eat low-carb diets? Carbohydrates get a bad rap because when eaten in excess, they may add adipose tissue, aka fat. You’ll notice that the calculator recommends lower carb levels for fat loss and higher for muscle gains. But if incorporated into a diet in the right levels and at the right times, carbs can provide all of the benefits with none of the cost.

Some of the best times to eat carbs are before, during, and after workouts, so they can supply you with energy and replenish the glycogen you expend during long training sessions.

Another great time to carb up? Dinnertime. Many people think you shouldn’t eat carbs at night if you want to stay lean, but this is a myth. Not only will carbs after dark not hurt you, but eating most of your carbohydrates in the evening can actually help you lose fat and optimize your hormone profile.[4]

GOOD CARBS AND BAD CARBS

For the most part, it’s best to opt for complex carbs from whole foods to fuel your day. These “good carbs” break down more slowly and provide sustained energy instead of spikes and crashes. Great sources of complex carbs include sweet potatoes, brown rice, fruit, and starchy veggies like peas and carrots, which all have plenty of fiber to slow down their digestion. These foods also have more of their micronutrients intact compared to processed foods.

But there’s a time and a place for simple carbs, too. “Bad carbs,” like certain types of candy, aren’t always bad. These simple carbs enter the bloodstream almost immediately because they don’t have to be broken down by digestion. This is what sends you on a blood-sugar rollercoaster when you eat them at the movies. But when you eat them right after exercise, the instant availability can be a good thing because it helps restore your muscle glycogen more quickly and start your recovery sooner.[5] In other words, the sugar goes straight to your muscles to help you heal up from your last workout and prime you for your next one.

LOW-CARB DIETS

The calculator on this page provides recommendations for a moderate-carbohydrate diet, with slightly lower carb levels for fat loss and higher levels for muscle gains. Low carb and ketogenic diets, in which you eat fewer carbs than calculated here, are also popular among people with specific fitness and weight-loss goals.

If you’re new to tracking your macros, start with the calculator’s recommendations to get a good starting baseline. If you’re transitioning from a standard American diet of near-daily burgers and burritos, this might already be lower than you’re used to. Then, if you decide you want to try a lower-carb approach, you can experiment with reducing your carb levels.
