What we think
If you’re someone who enjoys a beer or two at the end of the day, we have something for you.
We all love a good cold beer after a long day, long workout, or hard race. Sadly, alcoholic beverages can have an impact on your health goals and metabolic pathways that we rely on for energy. Not only that, but also general sleep quality.
Well, what if I told you that you can enjoy your daily beer without a drastic effect on your health?
Athletic Brewing: non-alcoholic beer that is full of flavor!
Athletic Brewing Company has set a goal to fulfill athletes’ beer cravings by formulating a non-alcoholic beer line that is just as good as regular beer. With the extreme health concerns that come with daily beer drinking (like dehydration, inflammation and metabolic dysfunctions) non-alcoholic beer can save the day... and night!
They retain all the robust flavor of high quality beer so you don't have to fret a lackluster NA alternative.
Why alcohol can be bad for your performance goals:
When it comes to athletic performance, cutting out alcohol and beer is crucial to being in sync with your nutrition. In fact, carbohydrate metabolism is completely altered as soon as any alcohol is ingested. What happens here is, alcohol takes priority in your metabolic pathways, leaving no resources for your body to metabolize and absorb carbohydrates. This basically allows your body to solely store your carbohydrates as fat, rather than utilizing it for energy. This can really alter your performance, especially since carbohydrates are your body’s preferred fuel source.
You shouldn’t have to sacrifice your ability to be healthy, active, and enjoy a good beer.
