It's time to rethink your recovery drink!
When your workout's done, your body isn't. Experts agree that refueling after exercise, especially during the two-hour recovery window, is key in helping the body recover and prepare for the next workout or competition. And, a growing body of research supports lowfat chocolate milk's recovery benefits.
Did You Know?
Lowfat chocolate milk naturally has many of the nutrients most commercial recovery drinks have to add in the lab - including high-quality protein and key electrolytes like calcium, potassium, sodium and magnesium. It's got the right mix of carbs and protein to refuel muscles after a tough workout. Not only does this nutrient-rich beverage taste great, study after study shows it's a "natural" for post-exercise recovery, with:
- High-quality protein to help repair and rebuild muscles
after strenuous exercise. Lowfat milk has also been shown to help athletes tone up - gain more lean muscle and lose fat - compared to drinking a carb-only drink or a soy protein beverage.
- Fluids and electrolytes to help you rehydrate
In fact, researchers have found that lowfat or fat free milk may help you restore and maintain hydration better than water and certain commercial sports drinks.
- 9 essential nutrients
Including some not typically found in recovery drinks. These include B vitamins for energy to get you going, and the combo of FIVE bone-building nutrients to help athletes build and maintain strong bones and reduce risk for stress fractures.
And, of course, chocolate milk is great tasting, affordable and probably already in your refrigerator!
