...damn important anyway.

"Scientists have discovered that a hidden vitamin in beer and milk called the "miracle molecule" may prevent obesity.

A new study found that nicotinamide riboside (NR), a molecule found to indirectly influence the activity of cell metabolism, could play an important role in preventing weight gain and diabetes, improving muscular performance and providing other "extraordinary health benefits," according to a Switzerland-based research team.

Researchers from the Polytechnic School in Lausanne say the results of the mice study were "impressive".

"NR appears to play a role in preventing obesity," researchers wrote in the study.

"Mice on a high-fat diet fed NR gained significantly less weight - 60 per cent - than mice eating the same diet, but without NR supplementation," they wrote. "In addition, none of the NR-treated mice had indications that they were developing diabetes, unlike the untreated mice."

Obviously beer should be a part of any well-thought out military PT regimen.
