Chocolate milk as a recovery drink? Sounds too good to be true, doesn’t it?
Good thing it’s not too good to be true! Benefits from post-workout chocolate milk consumption have been presented in 20+ studies. The National Milk Processor Promotion Board says, “Lowfat chocolate milk contains high-quality protein to help repair and rebuild muscles after strenuous exercise. It’s also been shown to help athletes tone up – gain more lean muscle and lose fat – compared to drinking a carb-only drink… chocolate milk naturally provides some of the same electrolytes that are added to commercial recovery drinks – including calcium, potassium, sodium and magnesium.”
