Chocolate Milk: An Ideal Post-Recovery Drink

Chocolate milk has the same 16 nutrients as white milk, including all its calcium and vitamin D.

Here’s a list of nutrients found in chocolate milk and what they can do, if you get enough:

Protein: Helps build and repair body tissues, including bones and muscles, and builds antibodies that fight infection.

Vitamin A: Aids bone and tooth development. Also aids in the maintenance of night vision and healthy skin.

Vitamin B12: Aids in red blood cell formation.

Vitamin B6: A factor in energy metabolism and tissue formation, including bones.

Riboflavin: A factor in energy metabolism and tissue formation.

Niacin: Aids in normal growth. A factor in energy metabolism and tissue formation, including bones.

Thiamine: Releases energy from carbohydrate and aids normal growth.

Pantothenic Acid: A factor in energy metabolism and tissue formation, including bones.

Folate: Also known as folic acid and folacin, aids in red blood cell formation.

Vitamin D: Enhances calcium and phosphorus absorption, on which strong bones and teeth depend.

Calcium: Aids in the formation and maintenance of strong bones and healthy teeth.

Magnesium: A factor in the health of bones and teeth, energy metabolism and tissue formation.

Phosphorus: A factor in the formation and maintenance of strong bones and healthy teeth.

Potassium: Aids in the correct functioning of nerves and muscles.

Zinc: A factor in tissue formation, including bones, and energy metabolism.

Selenium: An antioxidant involved in the formation of protein.

Chocolate milk contains no more sugar than unsweetened apple juice and only a very small amount of caffeine found naturally in cocoa. Its balance of protein and carbohydrates makes it an ideal post-workout recovery drink, and just like white milk, chocolate milk contributes to the health of our teeth.

A growing body of research suggests that chocolate milk may be an ideal post workout recovery drink, especially when consumed within 30 minutes of intense physical activity.1

About 85% water and low in fat, chocolate milk rehydrates while providing a unique carbohydrate-protein combination that aids in the quick recovery of muscle tissue and replenishes electrolytes, such as sodium and potassium, lost through sweating.1

During a workout, the muscles use stored carbohydrates (glycogen) as energy. As the glycogen gets used up, it becomes harder to continue exercising at a high intensity. Consuming carbohydrates right after a workout helps replenish muscle glycogen stores quickly so that you can get the most out of your next day’s workout.

Studies suggest that a beverage containing protein and carbohydrates such as chocolate milk may be as or more effective as a post-workout recovery beverage than a sports drink which containing only carbohydrates.1-3

Studies also indicate that drinking milk following resistance activity may encourage muscle gain and fat-loss.4-5

The Vanishing Mineral

The more essential magnesium proves for well-being, the harder it is to consume enough.

THE MINERAL magnesium is an essential nutrient that sustains every cell of the body. It helps power all cell functions, and it is critical to over 300 biologically active enzymes. Plants can’t do without it either; it regulates photosynthesis and chlorophyll production. The more it is studied, the more important the mineral proves to be for general health. New research stresses the value of magnesium in averting heart disease and stroke and calls outright for clinical trails of the mineral in preventing cardiovascular disease and curbing the rise in metabolic disorders such as diabetes.

Despite magnesium being one of the most abundant minerals in our bodies, deficiency is on the rise. At most, 40 percent of us get enough from the foods we eat. Deficiency manifests in symptoms as diverse as insomnia, muscle spasms, arrhythmias, insulin resistance, and anxiety. Magnesium levels in foods are declining, but your best bet for getting enough is still to make a deliberate effort to consume a magnesium-rich diet.
