How Chocolate Milk Can Help
Milk is good for you. Best not take it for granted just because we use it every day. A study published in the International Journal of Nutrition and Metabolism found chocolate milk to be an excellent post-exercise recovery aid. The ability to sustain intense endurance exercise (think bicycle racing, marathon running, or long distance swimming) depends on how much glycogen is stored in our skeletal muscles. Glycogen is a type of carbohydrate material

that gives our muscles the energy to perform. Intense endurance exercise burns up glycogen. To maintain peak performance, the glycogen needs to be replaced. The researchers, in a study of none male, endurance-trained cyclists, found that chocolate milk is an effective recovery aid between two exhausting exercise bouts.

Chocolate milk in the bottle is available in local supermarkets or you can make your own by following one of the two healthful and delicious recipes below.
