Is milk the new water?
Scientists have revealed milk could possibly be more hydrating than water
A team of scientists have discovered that milk could be more hydrating than water, as it works more efficiently with the body.
Professor Ronald Maughan, from St. Andrews' School of Medicine, explains that water is emptied from our stomachs almost immediately, meaning our bodies aren't taking on the water effectively.
“If you’re drinking water and then, within two hours, your urine output is really high and your urine is clear, that means the water is not staying in well,” says David Nieman, a professor of public health at Appalachian State University and director of the Human Performance Lab at the North Carolina Research Campus.
Milk on the other hand contains fats, proteins, salt and sugar, allowing it to be absorbed more slowly into the body due to its nutrients.
While there are fewer people drinking cow's milk these days, it turns out it could be a great way to hydrate.
But...do you like milk? Let me know!
