A new study says chocolate milk is best for recovery after a hard workout. The study by Dairy Max and the University of Texas found that chocolate milk outperformed sports drinks.
Researchers say chocolate milk has naturally occurring electrolytes, protein and itâ€™s 90% water â€” all helping to replenish the body.
This wasnâ€™t the first study on the benefits of chocolate milk, but it is different from others.
â€œThe thing that makes this recent study unique is that it was done in adolescents and high school athletes in a field-based setting where they were doing the regular sports activities for about five weeks and then they had the chocolate milk intervention,â€ Dr. Andrew Jagim, with the May Clinic Health System, said.
