Most of the people are drinking protein shakes after workout, because that will help with the recovery of the muscle and to grow up bigger.
But, the research, which was conducted recently, showed that chocolate milk contains the perfect combination of all the elements that the body needs to receive after exercise – carbohydrates, proteins, fats, water and electrolyte. So, yes, maybe it’s time to change the protein shakes or any other sport drinks with chocolate milk after hard workout.
Scientists in this study – studied the effect of drinking chocolate milk and so-called “sport drinks” like protein shakes, after training, taking into account the intensity and duration of training, as well as the average pulse of the participants during the exercise.
The results of the research shows that chocolate milk gives better results compared to other drinks. That’s because chocolate milk really contains elements that make you feel better after training.
The milk by itself contains two high-quality proteins, one of which is absorbed very quickly and the other slower, which means that consuming of milk after training offers you a continuous source of protein, which is a great thing to building muscles.
When we add to this the carbohydrates from chocolate, we have a “winning combination” for rapidly raising the level of energy.
Also good to know is that if you drink a cup of chocolate milk in your body you will also import magnesium, calcium, vitamin B6 and iron.
