New Research Reinforces Chocolate Milk's Role as Recovery Drink

Jun 04, 2010

Chocolate milk may be one of the best post-exercise recovery drinks, according to new research presented at the American College of Sports Medicine conference this week. In a series of four studies, researchers found that drinking fat-free chocolate milk after exercise can help the body retain, replenish and rebuild muscle to help the body recover. Drinking low-fat chocolate milk after a strenuous workout could even help prep muscles to perform better in a subsequent bout of exercise.

The Milk Processor Education Program (MilkPEP) has regularly promoted the recovery benefits of chocolate milk through its Refuel with Chocolate Milk program.

Details on the new research are available here.
