Refuel with Chocolate Milk

Get The Competitive Edge!

Runners, athletes and Zumba enthusiasts rejoice! Milk is nature’s sports drink and the perfect portable package to refuel after a workout. Emerging research indicates milk and chocolate milk may be as effective as some sports drinks in helping the body refuel, rehydrate and recover from intense exercise.

This news backs up well-known nutritional benefits of dairy such as bone building and muscle strengthening. Whether a novice or professional athlete, or somewhere in between, milk is quenching, enjoyable, readily available and affordable as a post-exercise, nutrient-dense beverage.

The carbohydrates in milk help to refuel muscles. Protein works to reduce muscle breakdown. And, fluid and electrolytes replenish what is lost to sweat to rehydrate the body.
